Composite Sheeting

Lane Roofing stripped the existing roof system and renewed with new composite roof panels.

All asbestos roof sheeting was carried out in line with current Health and Safety at Work act 1974 and (CAR) 2012 Control of Asbestos Regulations.

Lane Roofing installed new composite roof sheeting 120mm (Profile top sheet, insulation, white liner sheet). Roofing sheeting incorporated an insulation system (rigid board type) providing a U value in line with current Building Regulations Part L.



This particular project at Collins Aerospace took 8 weeks from start to finish, with 4 roofing specialists on site for the duration of the project.



Our client is situated within a busy airfield, with Birmingham Airports main runway being metres away. This posed certain complexities we had to overcome, one of them being; the height of plant on site could not go above strict restrictions due to aircraft being overhead. The aircraft fly approximately 30m overhead creating air turbulence across the roof area constantly. The combination of our moving temporary roof structure and our safety working platforms/anchor points enabled

us to work safely with the fragile roof area; this all had to be structurally designed and calculated to ensure maximum safety on site whilst also incorporating the atmosphere & ground conditions. The moving temporary roof structure was a completely independent assembly over the existing building, due to the current buildings ground conditions and surrounding air movement, this meant the design had to be completely independent of the building necessitating the entire structure

being counter balanced and weighted (half a tonne every metre) to ensure the moving temporary roof was safe and didn’t move with the environmental conditions faced.



As the client is an aerospace manufacturer the nature of their buildings need to be clean & debris free. When removing the roof area and installing and new roof this can be challenging, we counteracted this by installing a polythene liner internally to catch any debris. This is then cleared and removed regularly in accordance with current regulations to ensure that debris on site is kept to a minimum. This also meant that the operations underneath within the building could be continuous and

uninterrupted for our client. Therefore, our client’s processes were unaffected whilst their roof overhead was being removed and renewed.



We installed an independent temporary moving roof structure & safety fall arrest system over the existing roof area. This enabled us to work with the fragile roof system and create a weatherproof area whilst the roof was being removed. Our operatives were harnessed to the moving temporary roof; thus creating a safety structure as well as a weatherproof environment underneath, warranting the disturbance or water ingress internally was kept to a minimum.

This was an extremely complex project with many challenges that needed to be overcome. Safety was our paramount focus whilst also offering our client innovative conceptions to ensure their operations were unaffected. We faced restrictions and various tests which we stepped up to and impressed our client at every difficulty.


Project Management

On this project, we worked closely with our client and the surrounding

environment, as the conditions we faced were distinct and diverse whilst having various site restrictions that other roofing projects wouldn’t. The coordination & logistics of this project were constricted but firm meaning our project manager closely supervised & organised the operations to ensure we met the client’s requirements whilst taking current site conditions and environmental challenges on board. This was also a pedestrian zone and a 1-way system for traffic, this posed definite complexities when moving around site with plant and materials which had to be judiciously executed to ensure maximum safety was accomplished.



The weather conditions and challenges our operatives faced were tough to say the least. The roof area was renewed over an extremely wet period with various difficult elements they had to encounter. To provide our client and ourselves security we installed the temporary moving roof covering fitted on runners, which protected our teams and the building from the adverse weather conditions. Our teams also had other obstacles to tackle as the ground condition around the building was unsuitable & problematic, therefore safety ground matting was fitted to preserve the ground around the building and provide a safer working area. Our skill roof technicians and operatives completed the roof to the highest standards possible, which lead to the manufacturer using our project as a case study and within their marketing documentation.

Thank you Lane Roofing for a superb project, from start to finish!

Thank your team for the work aswell!

Daniel Coggington
Senior Facilities Manager

I just like to say a big thank to you and your roofing team, especially David Hines in finding all of the lightning conductor points on the East block roof.  David worked continually in the rain to identify all of the lightning conductors on the East block roof. (This was not an easy task). It has been great working with David and yourself.  You have communicated very well during the East block roof resurfacing and regardless of the lightning  conductor issues,  working with the Trust to address the problem.

David has worked a few times at the QE and  every time I feel at easy, knowing I am going to get a good job with little input by myself. David is always  prepared to go the extra mile just like yourself. You are both a credit to Lanes roofing.  I have found Lee to be same mould. I have spoken to Mick and he agrees with my words.

Patrick Innis,
Project Team Estates Monitoring Officer

I engaged the services of Lane Roofing to carry out major roof works at our Kings Heath self storage centre.

I met Gary Lane on site to discuss the skinning over the old existing asbestos roof as I believed the possibility of replacing the roof in its entirety, due to the nature of the material and that we were a functioning self-storage comany with the existing customers storing their valuable items below, would not be a possibility.

Gary explained in great detail that actually, stripping the old roof and replacing it with new was very much a possibility and that Lane Roofing had carried out these types of works many times and in much more sensitive industries than ours.

Options and advice were given for the best materials to suit our installation. Pre-works risk assessments and method statements were carried out. This was of a particular concern to us due to the hazard potential of the materials being removed and risk of contamination. It was very reassuring that air sampling and testing was done throughout the works.

All work was complete within the agreed time schedule. The installation team were extremely professional, considerate and carried out the works to a very high standard. The insatallation team were well supported by their own operations management team. Our staff and management formed a very close working relationship with the Lane Roofing team throughout the works. I would not hesitate to recommend Lane Roofing, I very glad we did.

Simon Stebbings,

Please can you pass on our thanks to Ben and Nathan for their work yesterday.

They were friendly yet professional, kept us advised of what they were doing, left the roof tidier than when they started and volunteered to replace the stained ceiling tiles.

We would definitely use Lane Roofing again – although I suspect they have now cured the problem!
