REDLAND Fast Recovery

Contractor M Camilleri & Sons Ltd reports that Redland’s dry-fix Rapid Vented Ridge and Rapid Hip Systems shaved four weeks off the original 28-week programme for the complete re-roofing of the 38-bed Ystradgnlais community hospital in Powys, Wales with Cambrian Slates.

After 20 years of service, the hospital’s complex 6,500m2 roof was leaking badly. Redland Cambrian slates specified by the architects Peter Barnes & Associates have not only transformed the appearance of building, but offered one of the few slating solutions that could be guaranteed to perform at the hospital roof’s lowest 17.5° angle of pitch.

Natural Welsh slate was dismissed for the job, as it couldn’t be guaranteed to perform at such a low pitch. Whereas Cambrian, produced locally at Redland’s factory in Rassau, Ebbw Vale and manufactured from recycled natural slate, offered both good looks and performance.

Using Redland’s SpecMaster service to ensure the whole roof specification is guaranteed to meet all relevant British Standards and building regulations, the hospital’s new roof is now guaranteed for 15 years. This guarantee covers the complete roof covering including all the fixings, flashings and the ridge ventilation specified to cope with the upgraded insulation.

M Camilleri & Sons’ re-roofing was completed in phases, carefully planned by the main contractor Anthony Davies Ltd in co-ordination with the hospital matron’s decanting of occupied wards.

“The dry-fix systems prevented the ongoing threat of rain from off-setting the overall completion gains for each phase,” said MD Mike Camilleri. “We could install the Rapid Vented Ridge and Rapid Hip systems with the confidence that their integrity would not be at risk under rain, which so often affects wet mortar.”
