Renewal of Flat Roofs

Standish Academy, near Wigan

Five flat roofs at the academy were suffering from ongoing leaks/water entry, which had caused damage to the internal fabric, creating a poor teaching environment. Funding was approved for the renewal of the coverings to all five flat roofed areas, with the new built-up Felt Roof System providing a 20 year insurance backed guarantee. The roofs were also fully insulated to modern-day Building Regulations Standards. The works reduced the school’s maintenance costs, improved the school’s energy efficiency, whilst enhancing the teaching environment and increasing pupil attainment.

All works were funded via the Condition Improvement Fund (CIF) with Lea Hough having prepared the CIF funding application (on a no-charge basis) on the academy’s behalf, prepared all specifications, designs, drawings, tendered the works to achieve competitive tender prices and carried out full project-management through to overall completion.



“We had a Schedule of Condition carried out on a Commercial Property. From vacant possession to our proposed completion date we were really tight on time. Gary managed to carry out the inspection and write a very thorough report in the time needed to ensure we hit our completion date. The price of the report was also extremely competitive. I would recommend Lea Hough to anyone looking for a Professional Surveyors with excellent service & communication at a competitive price.”
