We were successful in tendering for specialist repair works on the glass roof. The roof had developed a series of leaks and also the glass was in need of a complete clean.
Scaffold was erected and the area was made safe for operative to carry out the required works. Fully harnessed the operatives carefully moved around the roof and identified the areas where the water was entering the building and carried out the necessary repairs and resealed the roof. On completion the roof was then given a complete clean.
