Howden Adult Education College

Design Innovation at Howden College

Alwitra®'s Ultimate Single Ply Roofing Membrane, available in a wide range of standard colours has helped Howden Adult Education College in East Yorkshire, blend newly refurbished and existing roof areas perfectly for a co-ordinated look dramatically improving the building's aesthetic appeal and helping to significantly reduce costs.

With a wide choice of standard colours, it meant that the EVALON® membrane, an integral part of the alwitra® system, could offer a cost effective way for the College to blend and colour match existing areas - making it possible to avoid replacing the entire roof - with consequential budget savings.

The Surveyors Department at East Riding of Yorkshire Council was keen to complement the colour of existing terracotta felt roofs with alwitra®'s high performance single ply roofing system, which was specified for some 1400m² as part of a major external refurbishment.

The refurbishment work at Howden Education College had to progress while the facility remained operational with students on site. It was therefore important for the specification to include a product, which combined superb long-term performance and a cold fix method of installation. alwitra®'s EVALON® membrane again fitted the bill perfectly.

KRA Roofing Contractors of Mirfield, West Yorkshire was responsible for the project, which had a contract value in excess of £150,000 and took just six weeks to complete. In addition to the installation of alwitra®'s EVALON® membrane in terracotta and lead grey, KRA also installed a number finely engineered roof lights, also part of the alwitra® system.

Every alwitra® roof has a life expectancy in excess of 30 years and each project can only be installed by one of the Company's fully trained and licensed contractors.
