Bus fleet secure thanks to Ward
Ward high performance insulated roof and wall panels, approved to LPBC standards were the product of choice for a new bus depot in Cowley, Oxford,.
Ward IP1000/80 composite roof panel was used for the 3200m² roof at the Go-Ahead Group bus depot based on Watlington Road, Cowley and Ward DW1000 flat stucco embossed wall panels were specified by project architects B3 Burgess Ltd. The depot, which incorporates various offices and workshops for buses and coaches, will serve as an all-in-one service building for The Oxford Bus Company.
Terry Fitzpatrick, Area Sales Manager for Ward Insulated Panels comments: “Go-Ahead Group PLC required a robust product which would perform well in fire situations for a secure depot and service centre for the Oxford Bus Company fleet. Ward Firesafe roof and wall panels provided a cost effective ideal solution, aesthetically suited to the surrounding area.”
Contractors Midland Steel Structures installed the insulated roof and wall panels, Cladding Manager Geoff Polwin adds: “The Ward composite roof and wall panels were both quick and easy to install.”
Main contractor for the Go-Ahead bus depot in Cowley was G.W. Deeley Ltd.
