Modern Systems

Modern systems are a development of single and twin skin roofing and cladding systems, and encompass both contemporary and traditional, as well as new, materials for flat and pitched roofs, and walls. We keep up-to-date with new products developed for the industry so that we are able to supply and install the latest systems for clients.

We can demonstrate a wealth of expertise in designing and installing modern systems, ranging from very large, flag-ship projects such as the Medical Research Council’s’ new Laboratory for Molecular Biology, Cambridge Biomedical Campus – through to community sports and leisure projects such as the refurbishment of Forest Hill Pools, Lewisham – and projects with a strong environmental remit such as the National Institute of Agricultural Botany’s new Innovation Farm, Visitor Centre in Cambridge.

We are approved installers for many of the market leading, modern systems manufacturers including Kalzip, Sika Trocal, Kingspan, Euroclad, RHEINZINK®, VMZINC®, KME, Marley and IKO.

  • Composite systems
