The roof refurbishment works at Velocity UK in Sunderland are now complete. The 8-week program of works included 1500m² of industrial oversheeting as well as a thermal upgrade all whilst the building remained operational.
Following the completion of a roof condition survey it became apparent the existing roof waterproofing system at Velocity UK had come to the end of it’s serviceable life and was not offering suitable protection to the building and as such was in need of a full refurbishment. A subsequent roof condition report and roof refurbishment specification was provided to allow Velocity UK to make an informed decision on how they would like to refurbish their roof.
Due to the condition of the existing roof waterproofing system the decision was made to oversheet the roof with a Firth Steels plastisol coated single sheet utilising a Ashgrid Roof Spacer System. Velocity UK also opted for new rooflights and a thermal insulation upgrade alongside their new roof waterproofing system.
The new waterproofing system is now guaranteed and certified giving Velocity UK peace of mind for many years to come.
