Ysgol Pen Barras and Rhos Street School
Educational case study, Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra®
Client: Denbighshire County Council
Main contractor: Wynne Construction
Architect: Lovelock Mitchell Architects
Colorcoat® products: Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra®
Work on the new school started in 2017 and the client wanted a standing seam roof product that was durable, quick and easy to install and one that would meet the desired BREEAM rating.
We also wanted a product that was natural looking and one that would complement the project’s rural setting. That led us to choose Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® pre-finished steel in Moorland Green,” explains Lovelock Mitchell Architects Project Architect Tom Rhodes.Traditionally school projects in North Wales would have had a slate covered roof, however this product was deemed to be too expensive and an easier to maintain solution was required. Consequently, approximately 4,500m2 of 514mm standing seam was used, as well as a further 2,000m2 of flashings.
“This is the first time we have used Tata Steel’s standing seam with Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® and our installers had no problems and found it easy and quick to install,” says Wynne Construction Design Manager, Andy Garner. “As Colorcoat HPS200 Ultra® comes with the Confidex® Guarantee for up to 40 years, we have complete confidence in the product and peace of mind for this scheme,” sums up Mr Garner.
