Commercial Roofing Solutions were appointed as the cladding contractor for the cladding refurbishment to the Science Block and 6th Form new build project.

Metframe is an extremely competitive building solution when compared against the cost of timber and volumetric construction. Metframe delivers a high quality building solution, but another important benefit is the speed of build, with Metframe structures taking under two weeks per floor to construct. Sustainability is at the forefront of Metframe buildings, offering zero waste and a low carbon footprint.

Siniat’s Weather Defence is a revolutionary external gypsum sheathing board, faced with water-repellent material for superior weather protection. Strong, highly moisture-resistant and A1 non-combustible, not to mention Double BBA certified. Weather Defence is a faster way to a weathertight building compared to traditional sheathing board products due to no requirement for
segregated cutting area, power tools or dust extraction.

The Marley Eternit fibre cement cladding boards can achieve an A+ rating as defined in the ‘BRE Green Guide to Specification’ – based on a generic rating for autoclaved fibre cement single sheet. In addition, the panels have an installed life expectancy of at least 50 years and an A2 non-combustible fire rating; providing the client with complete peace of mind.
