Kingspan Production Facility | Sherburn, North Yorkshire

Weatherproofing Advisors where chosen by Kingspan to carry out a roofing refurbishment on their manufacturing plant in Sherburn, North Yorkshire. The plant had formerly operated as Wards Insulated Panels. Appointed as principal contractor, and responsible for all other trades on site, Weatherproofing Advisors carried out the complete roofing refurbishment of over 37,000m2 of roof and gutters. The project also included the installation of the largest solar photovoltaic roof system in Europe along with the installation of permanent man-safe lines and the refurbishment of the existing ventilation duct system.

Delivering Service the Weatherproofing way


Measured – Managed – Monitored

The extensive roofing refurbishment works incorporated the over sheeting of a number of existing steel roofs along with the removal and replacement of aged asbestos cement roofs. A new roof system was installed using a 40mm KS1000 RW panel, which was all manufactured in the Sherburn factory.

As the project commenced a new solar photovoltaic system was installed to the majority of the refurbished areas, providing 5 MW of energy to the plant. The re-roofing of all 37,000 square metres was completed within a period of 15 weeks, during which time the UK experienced unprecedented periods of prolonged rainfall and adverse weather conditions, which included no less than seven hurricanes.
