Alumasc donates Firestone RubberGard® EPDM to Church Roof Project.
Alumasc have donated their Firestone RubberGard® EPDM single ply roofing system to Balsall Heath Church Centre in Birmingham as part of a unique refurbishment project.
The Church’s new roof represents the UK’s very first use of an innovative Photovoltaic System from Advanced Green Technologies (AGT) with Firestone RubberGard® EPDM.
Rubbergard® provides outstanding performance at extremes of both hot and cold temperatures, making it AGT’s system of choice for use with AGT Flexlight solar panels.
Installation of the roof was carried out by Close Building Services of Doncaster and Birmingham, a Firestone Approved Installer who worked closely alongside Jericho Construction for the duration of the project.
Reverend Catherine Grylls of Balsall Heath Church Centre comments, “We are delighted with all the help given to allow this project to go forward. The Centre hopes to be a beacon of environmental sustainability. We will earn useful income for supplying clean electricity which will help to fund our work with local elders and we are delighted that this project will also benefit local unemployed young people through our partnership with the Jericho Foundation. For us as Christians it is vital that we try to live well with creation, locally and globally, and so environmental sustainability and addressing inequality are key issues for us.”
