Axis was engaged by our client, The Metropolitan Police, to deliver roof renewals and maintenance works to all main roofs at their Police Training and Assessment Centre in Kennington, London.
Our Commercial Team began this project with works comprising of repairs to the existing Asphalt Roof Coverings. This included the application of a new liquid plastics roof waterproofing system. We applied this to all flat roof areas. The team also removed all plant equipment and replaced the lightning conductor system.
We provided a full CCTV survey and laid walk-safe non-slip quartz surfaces to all maintenance areas. As part of the roof renewal works, we also carried out a rooftop drainage system overhaul and flush through. The team removed the steel access roof staircases and CAT ladders, then reinstated. We also renewed all rooftop doors, frames and access panels. Our team utilised a Mobile elevating work platform alongside a road closure and parking suspensions to carry out the work to the front elevation of the building.
We delivered the project over three phases on each roof area whilst the building was in full occupation. Four weeks were allowed for each phase of roof renewals and maintenance. We successfully delivered these works maintaining uninterrupted business as usual for our clients.
One of the challenges we faced was poor weather. The team on site planned around this and took the opportunity to maximise productivity with increased labour, in the dry periods. We worked intermittently to achieve our programmed delivery and completed the project within budget and on time.
