roof replacement
Re-roofing of HBSC Salisbury

OVERVIEW:
Greenway was called in for roof replacement works due to extensive water damage to listed building used by major high street bank, involving multiple services and the sourcing of matching materials.

INVESTIGATION:
A detailed inspection of the water intrusion through the suspected leaking roof was undertaken in multiple sections. Initial scaffolding was erected to allow the roofing team access to carry out a full survey to identify the condition of the roof, which was found to be beyond repair.

CHALLENGES:
1. Sourcing and costing superior materials to satisfy the preservation officer’s specifications was key to securing the project. 2. The job required a tender on 3 prices and to demonstrate how Greenway would carry out the works differently. 3. Safe public access on the city centre high street was required at all times with minimal disruption to normal banking operations.

SERVICES PROVIDED:
To facilitate roof replacement, scaffolding was modified to enable more netting, further lifts and an enclosure to eliminate the risk of falling objects. A more economical alternative slate with excellent colour match and superior quality was sourced to match the 100-year old existing roof.

Once approved by the preservation officer, the damaged roof was removed without complication and the new slates installed. After a week of heavy rain, further checks were carried out. Internal decoration works were undertaken in the main banking hall and stairwell to the office area, including painting, decorating and wallpapering services. The roof replacement was a success.

OUTCOME:
Further works were requested by the client including window cleaning services to the entire building and a quotation to repair vinyl flooring in another part of the building.
