Hawkins completed the installation of an over clad roof system to the complete roof area of circa 3,500m2. The over clad roofing system provided a cost effective weathered roof covering that also offered warranties for the works for 25 years. On completion of the works a The new Roof’s slim, high-performance SOLbond Integra crystalline photovoltaic modules are bonded directly to R32 roof sheets. Specifically designed for metal roofs, they provide a high power, lightweight (less than 10kg/m² solution that is easily supported by the roof structure. The high quality panels and inverters installed at the leisure centre are networked into the building management control system. The roof system is expected to provide an annual electricity saving of 39MWh and is also predicted to yield investment payback within a decade.
