Market-leading single ply manufacturer IKO Polymeric won one award and was highly commended in another at the Single Ply Roofing Association (SPRA) Awards on 22 June. Working with offsite specialist contractor Module-AR Limited, IKO Polymeric won the Innovation award for Parish Primary School, and was Highly Commended for the Best Health & Safety award for its work on an Ocado warehouse with FK Group.
Module-AR designed, manufactured and installed a 26 module single-story building to help Parish Primary School in Bromley expand. The full project – including removing the existing mobile buildings – took just 30 weeks. Using its unique prefabrication service, IKO Polymeric supplied bespoke roofing sheets incorporating its Armourplan P PVC single ply membrane in a specified RAL grey. The sheets were then installed as a mechanically-fastened roof system in Module-AR’s factory. Prefabricating the different elements (including roof lights and smoke vents) allowed for fast-track installation, reducing time spent and workforce needed on site while ensuring minimum disruption to the school.
IKO Polymeric and contactor FK Group completed a 48,000m2 roof in just four months for a vast fulfilment centre in Erith for premium British supermarket Ocado, in Erith. A number of innovations were developed specifically for the project by both companies, and Health & Safety was one of the main considerations.
“We’re delighted to have won at the Awards with these two projects that showcase the best of single ply,” comments Anthony Carlyle, Managing Director of IKO Polymeric. “The theme of this year’s SPRA Conference was ‘Raising the Bar’ and the projects recognised at the Awards clearly demonstrated this.”
