Birdham Business Park


CLIENT / CONTRACTOR:
Birdham Business Park - Chichester
VALUE:
Approximate Value: £100,000.00

Recently completed project direct for the owners of the property of a complete roof overlay of the existing old and tired but structurally sound roof.

The existing roof was fully insulated and overlaid using Thomas Panels and Profiles 1000/32 0.7 in Goosewing Grey with rooflights, and new Fatra membrane lined gutters.

Luckily, we were able to carry out this work during the Covid-19 lockdown as we did not need to access inside the properties. Overlays enable tenants to carry on working without any disruption to their business.

Approximate Value: £100,000.00
Client – Private Owners.

RCB were proud to be given the roof and canopy sections of this building from our client Knights Brown, this refurbishment offers improved facilities for training and welfare for the on-call firefighters.

Dunsfold Park, Cranleigh


CLIENT / CONTRACTOR:
Brymor Construction
VALUE:
£900,000

This project was used in a Kingspan case study. 
2017_Kingspan_Trapezoidal_RW_Roof_DLTR_Longspan_MR_Dunsfold_Park_UK (002)
Dunsfold Park, a former WWII Canadian airfield. The ambitious plan aims to provide 1,800 essential homes, 44,721 m2 of commercial and industrial spaces, in addition to community facilities and employment opportunities for local residents.
Area C of the main works comprises 8,072 m2 of light industrial units that have been erected on the north side of the 612-acre brownfield site. They feature the use of the Kingspan Insulated Panel roof and façade systems. The specified systems have a BRE Green Guide A+ rating which certifies that these products have excellent environmental performance and can help Dunsfold Park towards its aspirations of becoming Britain’s first zero-carbon settlement. Façade System Kingspan KS1000 Micro-Rib Colours Silver and Onyx. Roof System KS1000 RW Trapezoidal Roof Panels and Day-Lite Trapezoidal Rooflights.
During the planning stage, consideration was given to optimising the fabric performance of the industrial units, helping to limit their energy demand and CO2 emissions. The project team aimed to reduce the quantity of unwanted building materials being sent to landfill throughout construction and over the buildings’ lifetimes. The Kingspan Insulated Panels wall and roof systems supplied were to specified measurements resulting in very little surplus onsite. This helped support Dunsfold Park’s goals for waste reduction. The rooflights also helped to reduce artificial lighting demand and flood the warehouse with natural light to create a bright and welcoming work space.

Barn Conversions


CLIENT / CONTRACTOR:
Personnel
VALUE:
2017 Value £33,000 & 2019 Value £19,000

Both Barn conversions carried out in Romsey for the same client in 2017 & 2019. 

Roof and walls was replaced with Tata R13.5 profiled roof and wall sheets, the roof has HPS200 Ultra and the Wall in a Prisma finish in Anthracite with all matching rain water goods, flashings and trims, bringing them up to date ready for residential occupation.

These are stunning transformations, as you can see from the before and after photographs.  

Another diverse aspect of the work that we can carry out.

BMW (Dick Lovett) Motorbike showroom in Swindon – Motorrad


CLIENT / CONTRACTOR:
DICK LOVETT / SQUARE ONE CONSTRUCTION
VALUE:
£160,000

Extension of the existing Dick Lovett BMW Bike showroom in Swindon that RCB had already built on behalf of Square One Construction back in 2012.  On both the existing building and the new extension we used Kingspan standard KS1000RW, in Merlin Grey on the roof and Black on the walls, together with Marley Eternit Cedral Click Waetherboard and Thomas Panels and Profiles Single skin cladding on the soffit areas. We feel this simple design looks striking against the green landscape backdrop.  We also installed a SOTER mansafe system to the roof area for future maintenance. 

We extended the Farmhouse Building on the same site, again with Kingspan but this time with their KS1000ZIP panels, in plain stucco on the roof and Kingspan benchmark system to the wall areas. The walls were rendered (by others).

The existing roof required replacing and the plan was to try and retain the existing tiles but unfortunately, due to age and fragility this was not achievable. However, we managed to match as close as possible by using Marley Melodie Pantile Natural Red on the main roof and Marley Acme Single Camber Plain Tile to the porch.

Gallery shows: Original Building Built in 2012, Extension Building Built in 2019, Farmhouse – Existing Building, Farmhouse with modern extension and both the Motorrad and Farmhouse extension together.

Civil Engineering Training Centre (CETC) at Fareham College


CLIENT / CONTRACTOR:
Amiri Construction LTD
VALUE:
£227,000

We were appointed by Amiri Construction to install roof and wall cladding, SFS framing, Trespa panels and associated ancillary products on the new Civil Engineering Training Centre (CETC) at Fareham College. 

During works we were asked to sponsor a skip as an awareness initiative to improve the level of current recycling and waste generated on sites. 

CETC is currently a construction site that offers Groundwork and Civil Engineering Apprenticeships. It was set up in response to a county-wide skills shortage impacting civil engineering growth and expansion in the south. The project aims to deliver more than 1,600 groundwork and civil engineering apprenticeships over a five-year period.

RCB are grateful to be offered the opportunity to further support the progression of the younger generation in the construction industry. 

You can apply now for apprenticeships at www.fareham.ac.uk/applyforcetc
