New Extension to School Matches Existing Thanks to ARP

Having won a tender from Ashe Construction for the roofline and rainwater system on Clarborough School, consisting of a new extension with bullnose fascia details, rainwater goods including a single ply membrane and aluminium standing seam roof. Richard Perrins, from Jarvis knew exactly who he needed to contact to get the aluminium bullnose fascia designed and drawn.

The main challenge of this project was to match the architectural features of the new extensions exactly to the existing bullnose. CAD drawings were created of the bullnose profile and then issued to the client for comment and approval.

Once the drawings had been approved, Jarvis got back in touch with ARP to place the order for materials.

Having a good working relationship with ARP which has been built over the last 12 years, meant that both ARP and Jarvis worked together making sure that the fascia, was easy to manufacture and coat, but also easy to install, especially as all work had to be completed during the school shutdown.

The products used on this project were Trueline aluminium bullnose fascia with z plank soffit, along with Colonnade 101 mm swaged square radius edge downpipes, all polyester powder coated in ARP’s in-house paint line to RAL 5019 gloss to match the existing aluminium architectural roofline elements, doors and windows.

The benefits of using aluminium rainwater and roofline products on school projects, help tick the sustainability box. Made from recycled aluminium, a natural product, yet can be infinitely recycled without loss of material properties. Covering health and safety aspects, aluminium is lightweight and easy to install, but also very long lasting and durable, does not rust or corrode and is non- combustible, with an expected lifespan of 60 plus years.

Richard Perrin of Jarvis Roofing said “Everyone involved in this project were pleased with the outcome and finish, ARP provide good quality workmanship, in a short lead time.
