Case Studies – Investigations / Maintenance / Remedial Work

Fir View Gardens, Sheffield

Project Overview

IGL was approached to undertake an initial investigation to determine the cause of rainwater ingress at the apartment block at Fir View Gardens in Sheffield.

As a result of the intrinsic shortfall in roofing design, IGL recommended a pitched over roofing system to “Design out” the internal flat roof that was the cause of rainwater ingress and to reduce longer-term maintenance.

IGL delivered the above scheme incorporating extensive external repairs including window & external door replacement, re-cladding, and ancillary external repairs.

Due to the flats being occupied throughout, we specified an over roof protection system to enable the new roof structure to be installed during the winter period without disruption to the tenants.
