St Marks Skill Centre, Tresham College, Daventry Roofing System

The St Marks Skill Centre at the Tresham College in Corby first approached us with serious problems of a failing roof and also the acoustics within their building. The structure consisted of a profiled metal deck roof over a large open workshops. The client’s requirements were to resolve these problems. Higham Roofing undertook an extensive investigation and discovered that the original roof was metal profiled deck sheet with fibreboard and 3 layers of felt which had been unsuccessfully overlaid 2 years ago and was close to the end of its lifespan. The fibreboard content gave no insulation value and this also needed attention.

Sealed Air, Kettering - Permanent Walkway Systems

Sealed Air, Kettering - Rooflights & Asbestos Replacement Programme

Our client had a common problem for which they needed an economical solution with minimum hassle and no interruption of the production at their factories, whilst works were being carried out. The main priority of this roofing project was to prevent any further ingress of water into the building. The original roof was made from asbestos cement fibre sheeting. Our client had persistent issues of water ingress caused by severely delaminated rooflights and numerous cracked and defective asbestos cement fibre sheets. This was also compounded by the fact that, the rooflights had become opaque and dirty due to their age related deterioration which as a consequence made the building internally very dark.
