Weatherproofing Advisors were appointed by Formica UK Ltd to carry out the complete roofing refurbishment of the Compact Warehouse at their premier site in North Shields.
The project incorporated the replacement of the existing corrugated asbestos cement roof, relining of the existing box gutters and the removal of the glazing to the existing Lantern Light structure. The Formica site in North Shields is committed to be an asbestos free site by 2018.
Delivering Service the Weatherproofing way
Measured – Managed – Monitored
The extensive roofing refurbishment works to the south elevation of the factory incorporated the removal of the existing aged Twin Skin Corrugated Asbestos Cement roof sheeting along with the removal of the Glazing to the high level Lantern Light. A new 120mm Composite Panel roof system was then installed incorporating new Trapezoidal rooflights. The roofing refurbishment works were carefully planned to allow internal cleaning works to be carried out in conjunction with the removal of the old roof. The high level Glazed Lantern Light was stripped back to the existing steel frame and a new Twin Skin built up roof system was installed.
