This was one of the biggest projects Roof-Pro has been involved in to-date, and allowed our systems to show their significant benefits for flexibility and ease of installation.
Crown House & Laing O'Rourke decided to use the Roof-Pro support solutions for the landlord's roof-mounted plant areas, to provide a flexible and cost-effective method of installation of a large variety of services. Our surveying and design team visited site, and provided detailed CAD drawings of all our unit support frames for the project team. These included load management calculations for the project structural engineer's approval, which are a key element of the design process when supporting units of this size. High level access platforms were also designed for access to units, providing safe access for maintenance personnel.
Difficult coordination and penetrating plant supports were avoided by utilising our free-standing penetrations throughout the plant areas. Our design team provided all the required information to allow the project team to make correct and informed support decisions.
