Newchurch Primary School

The roof on the school building had come to the end of its life so Complete Roofing Systems was contracted to install a new felt roof.

The client wanted a more robust covering, which would be fully insulated to help conserve energy and meet Part L of the Building Regulations. Therefore, we specified a Reinforced Bituminous Membrane (RBM) system from Lancastria Waterproofing as the most appropriate material.

The timber deck had to be stripped back before the new built-up felt covering could be installed. RBM has traditionally been fixed using gas torches, which can pose a fire risk, so our team followed the NFRC’s Safe2Torch guidelines, using adhesives and hot air torches.
