Did you know you can vote for your favourite project in the NFRC #RoofingAwards18 this year? We think you should vote The Bund! Here's why:

Given the huge reception for the building, its innovative design, the first use in the UK of the beautiful Asturiana de Laminados SA - elZinc® Rainbow Gold Zinc roofing and cladding and the meticulous execution of the handmade details, we think The Bund (aka The Alchemist at Salford) is a worthy winner of Industry Choice.

Will you vote for it?

How to Vote:
To vote for The Bund (Aka The Alchemist) please
1. visit the voting page (https://lnkd.in/gkFpWtT) and
2. look for “Fully Supported Metal – The Bund”,
3. check the button next to it and cast your vote by leaving your email address as validation and hit ‘Cast Your Vote’. One vote per email address.

Make sure you vote now – voting closes on Friday 6th April. And why not encourage your colleagues to vote too?

This photograph was taken on a flat roof which we visited six months after installation. It shows an electricity cable has been passed through a new hole drilled in the roof. We often do annual surveys of school roofs as part of our planned maintenance service, and the cable was spotted during a check on one of these visits. Behind the electricity cable you can see a SVP (Soil Vent Pipe) which has been correctly installed – the cable at the front has not, and therefore has invalidated this roof’s 25-year warranty.

Read our latest blog post for guidance on how to avoid this problem. Need to warn your clients not to make this mistake? Feel free to share this post with them.

Best Roofing Photo of the Month – January 2018
Every month our field technicians visit and inspect hundreds of roofing projects across the UK. They see some of the best examples of good practice, and we thought we’d give them the opportunity to share some of these with you. The criteria are simple. Share with us a photograph demonstrating either good practice or best looking finished roof.

So, we’re delighted to launch our first ‘Best Roofing Photo’ competition with our first winner. Click the link to see the full photo and find out more about the project.

New Case Study: Seaside Zinc Cladding at Coast Apartments, Bournemouth. The first use of #elZinc Slate Advance in the UK.

Project Architect Jonathan Tolley especially welcomed the on-site support from SIG Zinc & Copper and ICEE. “The process of being able to work up detailing on site – being prepared to do that rather than expect a finished drawing – was particularly helpful, especially with so many different junctions.”

One of the most common questions our specification managers are asked is, ‘what should the upstand be on a flat roof?’. This question is frequently followed by, ‘what if I haven’t got 150mm?’. This article is about why upstands exist and how you can avoid asking the second question.
