Perry Hall Academy benefits from robust bituminous roofing system

  • 11 Sep 2015

IKO has provided a long-lasting bituminous built-up roofing system to Perry Hall Academy, a large primary school based in Wolverhampton.

Originally built in 1949, the school’s roof was in desperate need of replacement. IKO provided a detailed survey to help the academy with its funding bid. 

The survey revealed leaks, cracks in the mastic asphalt, pooled water and poor heat retention. The school decided upon an entire roof replacements and to have new roof lights fitted to allow in more natural light.

Working in collaboration with Denis O’Rourke of Concept Education Services and contractor G Cooper Roofing, IKO delivering a robust, long-lasting bituminous roofing system.

Products included IKO enertherm enhanced insulation to improve thermal efficiency and Goldseal Torch-On cap sheet which contains a fire retardant additive for improved fire performance.

Pyramid IKO Superlite triple-glazed structural rooflights were also fitted, which are more energy efficient, allow more natural light into the classrooms, and reduce glare and noise.

Kevin O’Connell, IKO’s Business Development Manager, explains: “The Academy needed a roof that could be quickly and safely installed by a manufacturer that could provide comprehensive technical support. Some of the work was completed during term time, so strict security measures were in place to keep pupils and staff safe.

This included making sure deliveries arrived before the start of the school day, and that work involving moving large amount of ballast was done over weekends and school holidays.”

The project was completed on time and in budget, providing the school with a BBA approved system with a 20 year single point guarantee.
