Due to limited site space we opted to use an offsite fabrication solution for the roof sheets. The completion of 5 buildings with identical roofing defined the most cost effective procurement of the Kalzip Roof was to have the bulk materials delivered as a coil and then rolled to the required profile and length. As the site locations prevented sufficient access for this fabrication facility we completed the works within the grounds of our head office, segregated the finished materials for each school and delivered them on a just in time basis; this provided minimal disruption to the sites, negated damage from materials being stored on a congested site and provided the Client with the most cost effective solution.
