We were recently appointed by Richmond-based Landteam, to complete new over cladding of the roof and wall facades at Simply Thank You’s 35,000sqft HQ building in Darlington.
The works were undertaken as part of a new lease arrangement which the Landlord had agreed with the corporate gift company.
The new cladding system has not only improved the building’s thermal performance through introducing insulation between the old and new roofs, but has also dramatically improved the external appearance of the property.
The cladding benefits from a 20-year warranty and new roof lights which have also improved natural light into the internal areas of the building through the use of translucent roof panels.
The project was completed within a 12-week period with no disruption to the firm’s ongoing operations, which ensured there was no loss of revenue for the tenant. There was also no physical disruption internally as the existing roof was retained in place.
This project provides a great example of effectively future-proofing a building for the long-term. The EPC value of the property was a D and has now been improved improved to C. For the Landlord this investment has improved the future marketability and potential value of the asset.
Over cladding existing coverings is a very successful method of upgrading roofing systems of occupied buildings to provide a cost-effective, long-term solution with minimal disruption.
Edward Speir of Landteam said: “Mark Coulter of Silverstone Building Consultancy was appointed by Landteam Developments Limited. Mark’s experience and expertise were invaluable during the administration of the contract. Mark was able to work effectively with the Landlord, tenant and contractors and the project was delivered on time and on budget. A successful outcome and I would highly recommend the services of Silverstone Building Consultancy for any other similar projects.”
