Lloyd Banks on Steadmans for head office refurbishment
Roofing and cladding company Steadmans has supplied a complete building envelope solution for the refurbishment of the Carlisle-based head office of prestige motors to agricultural machinery group Lloyd.
When the original head office was built 26 years ago it was supplied and erected by Brian Steadman, then Steadman’s managing director, for Ralph Lloyd, founder of the group. The recent refurbishment involved the removal and disposal of the asbestos roof enabling the property to be safely used as head offices, a lawn and leisure showroom and agricultural machinery workshop.
The architect for the refurbishment was Carlisle-based Architects Plus and the new 3,000m² roof was installed by New Metal Systems of Workington using Steadmans AS35/1000, 100mm thick insulated panel finished in grey mist. New Metal Systems also installed the rear gable wall using over 200m² of Steadmans 80mm AS35/1000 insulated panel finished in forest green . Both roof and wall panels benefit from a DobelNova colour finish providing a 30 year guarantee.
Kevin Norman, managing director of New Metal Systems, said: “Steadmans were flawless throughout the project. They provided us with sound advice, were never late with a delivery and played an active role in ensuring that the job ran smoothly. With any refurbishment project it is important that it is carried out with the minimum of disruption and Steadmans worked closely with us to achieve that objective.”
To complete the building envelope Steadmans also supplied metallic silver insulated flat wall panels to the front of the building, triple skin factory assembled in-plane roof lights plus 800 lin mtrs of gutters and flashings in metallic silver.
