Case Study: Derby Street

Derby Street


Another unusual project received from Alpha Roofing Systems of Astley was this old council building in Ormskirk.

This project was to be carried out whilst the building was fully occupied throughout, and proved challenging with the different levels of the roof, the step ups and downs between the different roofs and intersections.

Our dead load, site assembled, site adjustable, kit form solution was selected and had to incorporate large hips in order to create the pitch required by the client, this in turn meant that some hips were 4.5m high.

By working together with Alpha on the designs we found solutions that suited the client and have delivered what is a rather spectacular flat to pitch conversion and a very happy client.
