Alumasc’s Caltech Liquid Roofing system used at £1m High-Rise Block Refurbishment Project – Procured through LHC’s new Flat Roofing Framework
River Clyde Homes is the first organisation to procure through SPA’s new Flat Roofing framework. The Housing Association awarded the £1,000,000 project to manufacturers Alumasc Roofing Systems and Graham Roofing (Scotland) who will install the new Caltech Waterproofing System.
River Clyde Homes, based in Greenock, West Scotland, provide affordable rented accommodation to around 6,000 tenants. The project will see removal of the original roofing of three high-rise blocks in the Broomhill area of the town. The original felt roof covering on the blocks will be replaced with a newly insulated Caltech waterproofing system.
The OJEU compliant Flat Roofing framework met River Clyde Homes’ requirements and provided a clear and transparent procurement process. It also offered a cost-effective and long-term solution to roof deterioration, potential damage to external wall systems and water ingress on the flat roof areas.
River Clyde Home’s Senior Programme Officer, Brian Hughes, described SPA and the tender process as ‘robust, reliable and diligent in the assessment of quality and cost with positive outcomes in terms of the collaborative approach and support of SPA.’
The flat roofing project is due to complete in December 2017. The new roof covering will provide much-needed insulation and will increase the ‘U-value’ of the three high-rise blocks. This will assist in the reduction of heat loss, therefore, decreasing fuel bills for the residents in the future.
