Roller shutter doors to Resitrix® roofing
Once the main building had been constructed, we fitted brand new roller shutter doors and highly durable industrial roofing.
- Roller shutter doors – these doors were fitted due to the various benefits for a factory including greater security and safety to staff, and reduced noise levels. What’s more, fitting roller shutter doors to commercial premises tends to add value to the property.
Industrial roofing – we chose Resitrix® due to the EPDM content, which is a highly weather-resistant synthetic rubber with a water-resistant membrane. It is the perfect option for a flat roof because it is indestructible when it comes to UV rays and costly repairs are avoided as it can withstand all types of weather. As a high-quality and reliable material, Resitrix® is our first choice when it comes to fitting industrial roofing.
The site required an office area for staff, which included the installation of suspended ceilings and suitable partition walls to mask any noise from the factory area. Following the initial build, the client then asked us to install a canteen and locker room areas (see ‘Building Canteens & Locker Rooms on an Old Site’ for more details).
Deep clean for food hygiene
Once the site had been finished, we carried out a very thorough deep clean to make sure our client and their employees could move straight onto the premises without any delays or workflow issues. This involved ‘scissor lifts’ and ‘cherry pickers’ cleaning the whole of the roof space including ceiling tiles, cable trays, pipework and the entire steel framework within the building. Basically, any area that could potentially hold dust, which could drop into the food trays below, had to be thoroughly cleaned.
Project Management and Health & Safety
Carefully considered and thorough project management from start to finish enabled our client to rest assured that any challenges were being handled smoothly and successfully. GECC Ltd. directly managed the architect, service engineers and surveyors. What’s more, following strict building and CDM safety regulations, we liaised directly with the Health & Safety Executive removing any hassle on behalf of our client.
“I have to commend you all on your professionalism and knowledge and the help and guidance you gave – even before you had won the contract! Your professionalism continued throughout the project, and when we made fundamental changes to our requirements you still managed to get the job done.”
