Conyers School, Stockton – IKO Polimar

Project description

Conyers School, a secondary school and sixth form with academy status in Stockton-on-Tees, benefited from an extensive roofing refurbishment programme. The school required a reliable waterproofing and protection of the school buildings.

IKO PLC were invited by Faithful & Gould to undertake the survey and specification to achieve a 20 year guaranteed roofing system. The original survey identified 14 separate roofs sections at the school that were in varying states of disrepair.

Five areas called for immediate replacement due to their poor condition; six roofs needed replacing within one to three years and a further three were recommended to be replaced in four or more years.

Solution and installation

It was essential that the replacement roofs were reliable and would last as long as possible. The single layer, bituminous membrane IKO Mach One was recommended as a flame-free, sustainable and fast-fit system. The project also included an enhanced insulation scheme with new modular and structural mono-pitch roof lights.

The installation was carried out by roofing contractor, John Flowers Ltd, over 14 weeks during the summer to coincide as much as possible with school holidays, reducing any potential disruption to staff and pupils.
