THE NATIONAL ARCHIVES

The National Archives has a leak-free roof with a 12-year  warranty and ongoing maintenance contract.

 

PURPOSE OF THE WORK:

To stop leaks in the roof by replacing and improving glazing and curtain walling in building Q2, and to cut energy consumption.

 

WHAT WE DELIVERED:

  • Project to refurbish roof glazing and curtain walling to eliminate roof leaks in this 13,500sq m listed building
  • Improved glazing which contributed to a cut in energy consumption of around 50% over four years
  • Improved safety through the installation of new electrically-operated smoke vents linked to the fire alarm system
  • Reduction in maintenance costs by doing away with patch repairs
  • Enhanced working environment through glare reduction and improved sound insulation under the Heathrow flight-path
  • The building remained fully accessible for over 500 staff and hundreds of visitors a day throughout the project.

 

BENEFITS:

The National Archives have a leak-free building with a 12-year warranty against leaks and an ongoing maintenance contract.
