We Blossom in Winter

9th October 2020

As we do our best to recover from the Covid 19 Pandemic that hit our industry hard in the Spring, here at Dibsa we are committed to seeking out the positives that have started to appear despite the weather now turning colder and the nights drawing in.

We have some exciting wide ranging projects in the pipeline that we are working hard developing in conjunction with our clients. Many of these we are expecting to be required on site during the next 3 months which is an excellent boost given the difficulties we all suffered during the summer months.

As the title suggests we are undergoing the bloom of business normally experienced during the spring, we have a fully staffed drawing office along with a productive factory eager and enthusiastically getting their teeth into these great projects.

The projects we’re working on range from National Grid Buildings, Large Housing Developments, RAF Buildings, Industrial Developments and Health Centres’ each providing us with their own individual challenges.

As one of the leading lightweight galvanised steel roof structure suppliers and erectors in the United Kingdom, here at Dibsa we have developed various systems ideally suited to the market place. Each project is individually assessed with the Client’s brief, objectives and expectations forming the basis from which our design is evolved.

When considering the design and materials to be used within a project we look at generating lasting value by evaluating various options. Such exercises will assist in fine tuning costs where possible, reduce risk by regularly looking into best practice and by building environmental thinking into everything that we do. We are constantly redefining ourselves with environmentally inspired and innovative ideas designed to give us greater eco-efficiency.

We supply and install our product widely across the UK, partnering with established and experienced roofing contractors to ensure a consistency of quality with the installation of our products. We have our own qualified in house design and surveying facility and provide site specific calculations produced by our consultant Structural Engineer for each and every project.

Testimonial from Charles Dunn re Sutton Place

27th January 2020

We have three apartment blocks on the seafront at Bexhill totalling 54 flats which is self managed by our residents company SPRC Ltd.

Historically the buildings have suffered from water ingress emanating from the flat roofs causing water damage to individual apartments and communal areas. For nearly forty years several management committees have tried various waterproofing remedies to stop the water ingress but to no avail.

The current management committee decided the only way to solve the water ingress once and for all was to undertake a flat to pitch conversion. After researching the market, it soon became clear that Dibsa Structures from Yorkshire were the market leader for the steel frames necessary to build the lightweight roof structure. When we met the managing director Andy Foulkes we were left in no doubt that we were in safe hands, his knowledge of these types of structures was impressive, his honest straight talking approach filled us with the confidence we needed to proceed.

Our roofing engineer recommended Metrotile as our roofing tile of choice, Dibsa and Metrotile have proved to be the ideal combination. The workforce from Dibsa structures who built and tiled our roofs were exemplary, they were led by their own project manager who was highly experienced, his team were hard working, conscientious, polite and helpful.

Although this was a fairly large project lasting six months, for most of the time our residents were unaware of the work going on around them.

If you want roofs that look great and are free of water ingress then a flat to pitch conversion is the way forward. I have not the slightest hesitation in recommending Dibsa Structures, they produced a great product at a competitive price, and our buildings have been transformed thanks to their skill and expertise.
