Roof Over Clad and Solar Warranty

This project in London is a great example of an over-roofing solar conversion system that not only transforms the appearance of the building, but provides a fully integrated green energy solution.

A lightweight pitched sub-frame structure is installed directly over the existing failed flat roof, which once over-clad enables effective drainage and facilitates additional insulation within the newly created void. The economic implications of solar PV generation, along with increased insulation combine to produce a more energy efficient building.

Naturally, a refurbishment project of this nature should be risk managed effectively and professionally in order to ensure design, materials and workmanship are of the highest standard and conform to warranty and guarantee requirements. AWM Surveyors Ltd is experienced and proficient in providing technical support for the construction team and assurance for the warranty provider on this and a wide range of building projects.

Regular audit inspections cover all aspects of the build, from the design and installation of the steel sub-frame through to the flashing fixings and soil vent and chimney detailing. It is essential that the increased load generated by the solar PV panels is evaluated, and that seasonal snow loads are also considered.

Our auditing processes are detailed and robust and ensure right first time construction and peace of mind for our clients. A clean and green outcome in this instance.
