Location: Totton, Southampton

Sector: Commercial


Project Value: £320,000


Scope of Works:

T. A. Colbourne Limited where asked to improve the existing asbestos cement roofing system on this multispan, steel framed industrial building. This was part of a refurbishment project to improve the building for an incoming tenant.

We removed the old, poorly insulated roof system and replaced it with a modern composite panel system.

The new system improves significantly on what was already there, providing a U-Value of 0.18 as well as reducing the air leakage.

The new rooflights have increased natural light admittance as well as safety for roof access.

A more advanced gutter system was fitted over the existing. This has improved drainage capacity.

This new roof has improved the look of the building, reduced running costs and extended the useable life into the future.
