Project Details:
HBS secured this prestigious roofing project despite 5 other bidders within a competitive tender process for the client; The South Wales Police Authority.

The building required a full external scaffold which was carried out by tried and trusted partners from within the HBS supply chain. The flat roofing area of approx 2,200 square metres needed to be completed quickly and to a high specification. HBS were able to recommend a 25 year liquid roofing system. The solvent based elastomeric compound is a two coat system and can be used in low temperatures. The Liquid Roofing System is cold applied so there is no flammability risk as might be the case with hot applied products nor is there any requirement for naked flame completely reducing any possible fire risk.The HBS specialists cleaned and sealed the existing roofing surface before applying a primer base coat followed by the liquid high performance membrane. The system is quick drying which allowed the time sensitive programme to be met and being low odour it created no inconvenience to staff working within the building. The HBS team removed the complete existing timber fascia & soffit and replaced it with a low maintenance Trespa composite system.
