Fife Council appointed Forster to act as principal contractor for the re-roofing of Lochgelly High School. The project consisted of three phases, with the initial pilot phase dedicated to establish the specification and practicalities of working in a busy community school environment.
Following the pilot, the finalised specification was introduced for phase 1 (completed 2006) and phase 2, which is scheduled for completion in September 2007.
Along with replacing the existing fibre cement tiles, Fife Council also took the opportunity to replace leadwork, fascias, soffits, gutters and upgrade the roof insulation as part of the works.
A Lafarge Cambrian Tile was selected for its slate appearance, lightweight and suitability for low pitches. Lafarge dry fix accessories were also utilised to give the client a maintenance free roof finish covering approximately 7,000m2 over 120 roof panels.
