Stewart Construction appointed Deane Roofing & Cladding for the supply and installation of the roofing and cladding envelope to the new Distribution Centre for Grifols Worldwide Operators Ltd. This new facility consisted of warehouse storage and packaging areas along with a Cold store freezer and administration block.

The Roofing system supplied and installed consisted of Kingspan Topdek panels with Trocal upstands and detailing. There was a significant interface with the specialist cold store structure and some complex movement joints incorporated into the design.

The cladding system included Kingspan Longspan AB Panel finished in Micro rib and in addition a long span AB panel with a louvre profile.

Areas of staircases and glazing were boxed in Kingspan Benchmark Optimo Flat Panel with bespoke preformed corners to columns soffits and features.

There were some ancillary buildings, such as pump house, security control room, also completed in Kingspan AWP and Trocal roofing.

There was a high-quality finish demanded on the project. This was managed by ITP process by the site team with recorded inspections throughout the build. Third party inspections and warranty closed the quality process to provide warranties and guarantees on the installation.

The main challenge on the project came in terms of design if the Cold room interfaces between roof cold room walls and envelope cladding, with the provision for movement between the structures. Once the design was complete it was a matter of having the highest quality workmanship and review process to manage it.

Brennan Associates, Quantity Surveyors have worked on many projects with Deane Roofing and Cladding where they were specialist subcontractors for the Roofing and Cladding elements. Each project has been unique in its own way challenging the Design Team and Contractors alike. In these situations, we have found their team to be engaging, responsive, and technically proficient in resolving issues as they arose.

They have always maintained a high standard of workmanship, management, budget control and coordination with meticulous attention to detail being exerted throughout the projects. We would have no hesitation in recommending them for commercial roofing and cladding projects.
