Arnold Clark is Europe’s largest independently owned car retailer with 200 branches across the UK. Their Nottingham Motorstore offers customers a range of over 400 new and used cars from their purpose-built facility on the outskirts of the city.
When the showroom required a new roof, they approached specialist industrial roofing contractor Pro Industrial Roofing and Cladding to tender. At 10,000m2, the reroofing project was to be PIRC’s largest single skin projects to date, and their first for Arnold Clark.
Large reroofing projects can be relatively straightforward but the key to success is reliability in product choice, fabrication and delivery. In order to meet the client’s tight programme, the materials would need to be fabricated in short order and delivered on a single day.
PIRC have worked with Steadmans, the leading manufacturer of roofing and cladding profiles, for several years and built up a good relationship with the team, so they approached them to support the tender and quote for the job at short notice.
Paul Lett, Area Sales Manager for Steadmans, said:
“Pro Industrial Roofing gave us the timescale at the point of quoting so that we could work with our production team to schedule the work, even with a quick turnaround of a few weeks. A job like this is simple to manufacture, and we were able to run a continuous line to fabricate the sheeting in two shifts.
Steadmans supplied all the components for the reroofing project including 10,000m2 of AS30/1000 0.7mm deep profile external roof sheet in Goosewing Grey, with all required accessories, with insulation, fixings and all required accessories, on one single day.”
David Ferguson, Director at Pro Industrial Roofing, said:
“The job ran smoothly from start to finish, as I would expect with Steadmans. Everything arrived as planned and we were able to deliver to the tight programme.
The result is a showpiece project for our company which has delivered several further projects with the client, thanks to a smooth execution, high quality finish and good teamwork.”
Steadmans Single Skin Steel Cladding is manufactured to the highest quality standards using premium pre-coated rolled steel sheets at their state-of-the-art production facilities. Suitable for both roof and walls, the profiles can be used to form roofs down to a 4º pitch (or 6 º if rooflights are required). The profiles can be offered with material warranties up to 40 years and are installed in a variety of industrial buildings across the UK.
