Coombe Dean School

How the project evolved

The Flat Roof had become troublesome and was failing to meet both regulations and new energy guidelines.

The Flat roof at Coombe Dean School Plymstock, had over the years become more troublesome and was failing to meet both regulations and new energy guidelines. The constant rain throughout the area was not helping either and after an independent survey of the roof it was decided that it had reached the end of its life expectancy and needed to be replaced. The requirement to replace the whole 2500 square metres also meant that the roof would now comply with part (L) of the building regulations and would also make a significant reduction in the carbon footprint of the school.

Deadlines to meet and the awful weather of March 2013

This project involved the installation of a high performance felt system with insulation to cover an area of 2500 square metres. Roofs were prepared by removing existing chippings and a vapour control layer installed by torch on application. Insulation was the bonded to the VCL and a two layer elastomeric high performance felt system installed to the insulation boards with 20 year guarantee. This project was undertaken in some really testing conditions with wind and rain a constant factor. Project was completed much to the satisfaction of client with only minor disruption to the school.
