This project created a new annexe building with the aim of echoing the shape of the existing church roof with three 45 degree roof slopes, simulating a North/South aisle and nave, albeit with a modern design feel.
Before starting work, we liaised closely with the architect to utilise standing seam material that would be aesthetically suitable with a long lifespan. The solution chosen was VMZ Quartz Zinc.
The design of the cantilevered roof pitches enabled us to taper the standing seam roof sheets, while 1mm zinc soffits were fabricated to suit the required dimensions and great care was taken to ensure that the spacing and soffit panels were installed symmetrically.
An effective roof guttering system was designed to be integrated around the 11 metre long roof sheets with T-Pren expansion joints located a metre from every corner.
