Boss House is an upmarket warehouse conversion situated in the Shad Thames District of London. The existing 14-year-old roof urgently needed a complete upgrade, requiring Alumasc to work closely with the Surveyors to provide an innovative solution which would avoid the displacement of residents for the duration of the works. The proposal involved attaching a new plywood base to the existing standing seam roof using timber packers fixed into the metal structural purlins. Working with the installer, Alumasc carried out tests on the roof to ascertain the correct fixings and to confirm that it would be possible to carry out work with residents still inside the premises. 1600m² of 4mm Derbigum Mineral Charcoal was installed on time with minimal disruption to residents.
