Pro-tecting educational regeneration

‘Ambitious’ plans to regenerate an empty building in Bradford city centre into a centre of academic excellence are underway.

Interserve’s £7.5m project will convert the McMillan Building into the Dixons McMillan Academy for the Dixons Academy chain. The main construction is now complete. The existing building has been partially demolished, an extension converted and a new-build sports hall constructed around a central, multi-use ‘heart space’.

FCB Roofing stripped the existing roof, upgraded it and built up the new roofs using 2000m2 of mechanically-fixed standard overlap Protan SE1.2mm single ply membrane.

FCB’s Alan Horton, explained: “Protan was specified as the preferred roofing membrane. We have a proven track record using Protan products, so were happy to adhere to the specification.

“We were confident that Protan’s membrane would enable us to fulfil our part of the project efficiently and that the membrane will deliver excellence in roofing.”
