Alumasc Rainwater has provided a beautiful bespoke Rainwater System to the Royal Liverpool Golf Club in Hoylake – just a few weeks prior to the 2014 Open Championship.
As part of key preparations for the world-famous tournament, the rainwater system on the Clubhouse was in need of some refurbishment, but works had to be carried out within a tight timeframe of 8 weeks in order for it to be completed in time for the competition.
Alumasc’s Pre-Painted Cast Iron system was chosen for the massive savings it offers by cancelling out the need for having to paint several coats on site. The specification of a painted factory finish, completely removed the need for post-installation paintwork, saving the Golf Club around 60% on installation time, and 30% on cost.
Furber Roofing installed approximately 100 linear metres of Alumasc’s painted Cast Iron Rainwater around all elevations of the Clubhouse, and in order to ensure a result that remained sympathetic to the heritage of the stunning Victorian building, Alumasc manufactured bespoke Holderbats which were colour and design matched to existing products.
Alumasc’s pre-painted cast iron range boasts a highly durable four-coat factory finish available in eight standard heritage colours. Lasting up to seven years before re-painting is required, all products carry Alumasc’s certified paint mark to confirm the four-coat system, giving reassurance that the range is fully protected against the elements.
Furber Roofing and Alumasc made initial site visits to ascertain the best specification. Phil Parker, Head Surveyor at Furber Roofing, said:
“It was crucial that Alumasc was able to supply the guttering and downpipes pre-painted on this very tight-deadline project. Had it not been for the time-savings made on site, the installation would not have been possible in such a short time. The result is a very well-presented clubhouse which looked great in time for the prestigious Open Championship.”
Pete Wainer, Area Sales Manager for Alumasc Rainwater & Drainage, commented:
“It was great to work on such a high-profile installation, especially knowing that the Open would soon he held there. By working closely together and combining factory finish and bespoke products, Alumasc and Furber Roofing were able to provide the Clubhouse with a rainwater solution which met both the tight timescale and the need for quality products.”Alumasc’s pre-painted cast iron range boasts a highly durable four-coat factory finish available in eight standard heritage colours.
