Kingsdown School in Stratton St Margaret, Swindon, has recently given its sports and leisure centre a brand new roofing system using Euroclad’s specialist Elite Refresh system.

Challenge

After acquiring Kingsdown Leisure Centre in 2011, Kingsdown School refurbished the centre to create a state-of-the-art sports facility. The school then made the decision to upgrade the building’s roof when the existing one proved to be nearing the end of its life.

The 12-week project took place during the school’s term time, which required the sports centre for lessons. The installation team were faced with the challenge of keeping the facility fully operational and safe for the pupils during refurbishment. As the installation took place over the winter, the installers also had to ensure that rain did not leak into the building and create a hazard for pupils inside.

Solution

Euroclad’s Elite Refresh system was chosen for the refurbishment of the deteriorating roof. The system as supplied as a tailored solution and installed by Mitie Roofing.

Part of the roof needed to be removed and replaced, whilst other parts of the roof could simply be refurbished. Mitie installed a 32/1000 Euroclad external profile manufactured using Colorcoat Prisma prefinished steel in metallic silver.

Elite Refresh proved to be the ideal solution, offering the performance and flexibility to suit both the over-cladding and strip-and-replace parts of the roof, whilst enabling Mitie to ensure the safety of the work and study environment with minimal interruptions to the daily running of the school.

Benefits

Elite Refresh provides a long-lasting solution, whilst improving thermal and acoustic performance, by over-cladding an existing structure.

The recently developed systems offer many of the benefits available with standard Elite Systems and can be adapted to suit various existing construction types, from fibre cement to composite panel. To meet the unique requirements of each project, a combination of top-hat sections, the Quattro spacer system and quilt insulation is used in conjunction with any of the external sheets available in the standard Elite Systems range, depending upon project specifics.
