Huge Boost for Roofing Company with 1.5m of New Contracts

Architectural metal roofing and cladding company T R Freeman has announced new contracts totalling just under 1,500,000.

The Cambridge company, based opposite Cambridge United, has a series of new contract wins. They include a 450,000 order for single ply on a major homes development, and a 150,000 Kalzip roof on a school extension.

Gary Webb , the managing director of T R Freeman, said: "We may be officially out of recession but the reality is that construction growth is still to return. However T R Freeman is punching above its weight. We've worked very hard to win these new contracts, and look forward to working with all the contractors. One of the contracts is the biggest order yet for our single ply division, which was only set up last year. It indicates that T R Freeman is going to have a great 2010."

Some of the orders include:

•    Grahame Park, Barnet, London: 450,000 of single ply on a new housing development. Countryside Properties is building 2,977 new homes over 15 years. 35% will be affordable housing

•    St Mark's Church of England Academy, Mitchum, Surrey: A new Kalzip nature roof worth 150,000 for this school extension

It is heavily involved in the local community, including a record-breaking 10 year sponsorship of Cambridge United's away shirts.
