Case study: Our Lady Queen of Peace, Penshaw

The company was brought into the project by architects, Clark Dillon, to replace on a like-for-like basis five of the school’s flat roofs and four large slate roofs.

A team of nine men were assigned to the project.

Weathering and wear-and-tear over the years led to the need for the roof replacement. The team worked closely with the head teacher and site manager to ensure the project ran smoothly.


  • Isolate the rear renovation in the two weeks prior to pupils breaking up for the summer holidays. This to take place so as to allow the team to take control of the front of the building.
  • Cabins and welfare sites were erected for the team onsite.
  • High quality Spanish slate was selected which also had the added benefit of fitting in with the style of the building.
  • A garland specification was used for the flat roof.
  • The pupils wrote messages on the slate. This is to be included on the roof for the next generation.

Customer Feedback:

The school were delighted by the finished work and performance of the team onsite. There was minimal disruption to the school as the majority of the works were completed during the school holidays.
