The key focus for this project was to provide a new roofing system to the entire building. The works consisted of completely stripping the existing coverings, providing new ‘between rafter’ TLX Gold insulation and finishing with reclaimed tiles complete with lead detailing throughout. Further external works included replacement of all existing crittal windows with modern factory finished aluminium double glazed units, and specialist TORC cleaning of all brick elevations. Existing metal staircases which had reached the end of their design life were replaced for new galvanised steel fire escape systems as part of the works package.
With the hospital remaining in operation 24/7, works had to be phased to ensure that the integrity and weather proof properties of the roof were maintained at all times. The West 1 management team carefully coordinated work packages, inc. associated supplier’s deliveries and transfers to minimise any noise, disruption and mess that could impact on the hospitals operations.
