Prater has been appointed to deliver roofing works at London’s iconic Selfridges department store on Oxford Street. The project to refurbish select areas of the 400m2 roof is due to commence this month.
The £800,000 programme will see the north and south areas of the roof renovated, featuring a built up single ply roofing system incorporating a Perforated Tata Roofdeck D200 with mineral fibre acoustic batts. A support structure will allow for one rooflight per roof area, while Tertiary steel supports and 75mm corrugated steel decking sheets will then form the upstand, covered with the single ply build up.
Prater says this project is the latest London landmark to feature its specialist work, with previous projects in the capital including the Olympic Stadium and Velodrome, as well as London’s Gatwick, Heathrow and Stanstead airports.
