Rea Street, located in Central Birmingham are Residential flats owned and provided to residents by Birmingham City Council. Following a recent, annual building survey, the decision was made that a full building envelope refurbishment needed to take place to further prolong the building’s life, improve thermal efficiency and improve the inhabitant’s lives.

Rooftop Edge Protection and CDM:
Aluamsc’s Surefoot Guardrail system now provides future protection to users of the flat roof when inspecting them or carrying out future maintenance. The free-standing, counterbalance design of the Guardrail system is ideal as it requires no drilling through the newly installed waterproofing thus guaranteeing the roofs’ waterproof integrity.

The system is supplied in kit form ready to build and the modular components are quick and easy to link together bringing the flat roof area in-line with current CDM regulations.

Benefits of Alumasc’s single source building envelope solution
Exploiting the combined expertise of Alumasc Roofing and Facade Systems allows a truly single source building envelope that we believe is integral to a system of this nature. Alumasc’s nationwide network of registered contractors combined with our own site monitoring team(s) ensures compliance with the warranty and codes of practice are observed through to completion. One point of contact and one installation team provides a single source building envelope to the successful completion of the works thus limiting potential split responsibility.

The holistic approach to the design allowed for interfacing to be performed pre-contract allowing for installation on time, on budget and without compromise in terms of quality.
Split responsibility may result in the use of various trades and contractors, which in turn may lead to installation errors, damage to materials or negative warranty implications. The Alumasc Single Point Warranty limits this.

Alumasc’s single point warranties assure Birmingham City Council that if they require any further support in relation to this project in future it can be swiftly and efficiently provided from one single point of contact. This also includes details designed by Alumasc or any workmanship queries.
