Offerton High School takes the worst the NW can throw at it

Scenic North West England is well known for its heavy annual rainfall and unpredictable weather patterns which often affect sports events as well as play havoc with the building industry

As specialist roofing contractor, Hardisty CRN, can attest, it is not just football fans and walkers who can get caught out by the elements: their team does too! Therefore, the management must plan projects meticulously throughout the year and employ systems which mitigate the risks of sudden downpours.

One such project has been successfully carried out at Offerton High School in Stockport where the series of flat roofs atop its 1960s structures look out across a forbidding moorland landscape.

Hardisty were chosen based on the company’s reputation and standing as a Tremco approved installer.

Tremco’s Rapid Cure Roofing System CR360/CP930 was chosen for the job due to its very rapid drying time and certainty of application. Where other products have failed over the years due to drying dull if exposed to moisture while curing or leaks, Tremco’s ETAG approved Rapid Cure Roofing System was the perfect solution for Offteron High School.

Not only does the Tremco Repoma Rapid Cure Roofing System CR360/CP930 offer rapid curing and excellent flexibility, the products can now be specified as BIM-compliant objects for use with Revitt design software. Further to this, tremco illbruck offers comprehensive technical back up and on-site support where required. In the case of the Offerton High School contract, the manufacturer’s Area Representative and technical support team visited site regularly to advise on detailing.
