Claim arising from serious defects to new school sports hall zinc roof

We are acting for a local academy in relation to the failure of the zinc covering to the aerofoil roof on their sports hall which was only completed about 2 years ago, which has led to leaks into the main sports arena risking permanent damage to the flooring.

The client had experienced problems in getting the main contractor, who was responsible for the design and construction of the roof, to take ownership of the problem. We appointed a roofing expert who has established the need for the roof to be replaced entirely using a different covering, the method used having failed on other buildings. We swiftly secured agreement from the contractor to erect temporary protection while the specification for the full replacement to be installed was agreed, and thereafter implemented.

How can we help?
