Den Court Case Study

The project

Constructed in 1977, Den Court is a large retirement home made up of 24 flats in the small town of Lochgelly in Fife. The regeneration of the sheltered housing by Fife Council involved the demolition of part of the building as well as replacement windows and doors, landscaping and a new car park.

Bauder Building Board

Project: Den Court Care Home, Cardenden
Location: Lochgelly, Fife, Scotland
Project Type: Refurbishment
Roof Area: 1200m²
Specifier: Fife Council
Approved Contractor: Greenroof UK

The requirement

In order to provide an aesthetical finish and to remain in keeping with the original roof of the building and with the other buildings of the area, the client was very clear that lead effect rolls were essential for the roof.  Bauder’s Thermofol PVC system was specified and approved contractor Greenroof (UK) hand-crafted over 2,000 linear meters of timber battens wrapped in the Bauder Thermofol U15 Fleece Back waterproofing membrane. These were then installed on to the 1200m² roof area.

The outcome

Thanks to the hard work and craftsmanship deployed by the approved contractor and the high-quality products used on the project, following a roof inspection from an expert Bauder Site Technician and a leak test, Bauder was able to issue a 20-year product and workmanship guarantee to the roof.
