A 26 module school extension was designed, manufactured and installed in just 30 weeks by contractor Module AR, using IKO Polymeric’s prefabricated single ply roofing system fitted with its premium PVC membrane Armourplan P.
Parish CofE Primary School in Bromley, South-East London, needed to expand to meet growing demand. The plan to increase the number of entry forms from two to three meant building an additional 12 classrooms, a toilet block, a group room and an entrance lobby. And it all had to be done quickly, with minimal disruption to the existing school. A modular building was the answer, with bespoke single ply roofing sheets in a specific RAL grey provided by market-leading manufacturer IKO Polymeric.
The sheets were installed as a mechanically-fastened roof system in Module-AR’s factory. Prefabricating the different elements (including 30 roof lights and smoke vents) saved significant time on the overall project, allowed for fast-track installation, reduced the number of workforce needed on site and ensured minimum disruption to the school.
The full project – which included removing the existing mobile buildings – provided London Borough of Bromley with programme benefits of 16 weeks. Working with Module-AR, IKO Polymeric won the SPRA Innovation Award for the project in June this year.
