Refurbishment

Re use the building

Re Use the buildingOne of the most sustainable approaches to construction is to refurbish an existing structure. Euroclad products and systems lend themselves to refurbishment applications perfectly and can help achieve a faster, more cost effective build with less local disruption and reduced environmental impact, giving a new lease of life to a previously undesirable building. Modern methods of construction and innovative materials can transform tired and outdated buildings into attractive and inspiring spaces.  In addition to the social benefits, refurbishments can be more economical even when the complete building envelope needs replacing.  The majority of the building fabric can be retained, saving a significant amount of time and money.  In addition, by reusing the functioning parts of the building, the impact on the environment is lowered, with material production and transport being greatly reduced.

Over-roofing

Over RoofingOver-roofing is often the best option for refurbishing existing roofs which have come to the end of their functional life or become uneconomic to repair. This method of refurbishment avoids the cost of stripping and disposing of the redundant material, minimises the disruption to occupancy and allows uninterrupted use of the building.  Not all roofs are suitable and consideration must be given to the structural stability of the original framing and secondary purlins and its ability to withstand increased loading.  Interstitial condensation within the construction and its effect on hidden components must be given due consideration.  The safety of operatives working on the roof is also a crucial factor that must be considered.

 

Trisco 3D thermal modelling system

SF500 Over Roofing CompletedWhen over-roofing it is wise to presume that the existing construction is porous and the designed thermal performance has decreased to such an extent it may be ignored. Euroclads' spacer systems fitted over the Euroclad vapour barrier are eminently suitable for over-roofing purposes with Eurobar having an extensive range of single leg brackets, which will fit into the trough of almost any profiled sheet.  Eurobar extra with its twin legged bracket or mast is better suited to over-sheeting old metal or flat roofing situations where its increased strength provides better span characteristics.  The range enables us to provide specifications for a variety of U-values all modelled using our state-of-the-art Trisco 3D thermal modelling system. Elite systems providing a guaranteed performance are available for over-roofing and NBS specifications and basic construction sections are available.
