Curtis Moore were approached by a leading main contractor and asked to deliver a bespoke and unique scheme in an attempt to win a competitive tender for the flat to pitched roof conversions on 11 blocks known as ‘T 84’S’ – These being mini high rise blocks of flats.

The competition were tendering on a traditional Hot Rolled structural steel solution, which involved extensive craneage, multi trades and large roof penetrations, which would ultimately lead to water ingress issues. Curtis moore designed and offered a lightweight structural framing solution which not only reduced cost and risk of water ingress – It also gave the main contractor the comfort of having one contractor solely responsible for the installation of the complete roof system, with no divide over liability.

Curtis Moore successfully installed pre-fabricated SFS framed trusses to 11 number blocks and despite over 1,000 resin anchors being cast through each of the existing roofs, maintained a watertight solution during the construction process.

Curtis Moore’s package included the roofing, gutters, Kingspan Microrib vertical cladding, together with roof access and safety systems. Curtis Moore took on the complete design responsibility, providing all SER Certification and documentation.
