Sheringham High School

Bauder Total Roof System (BTRS) with BauderSOLAR


This academy status, ​secondary school located in Norfolk underwent significant refurbishment to repair a number of its failing roofs. The client wanted the school’s campus to act as a benchmark for sustainability and therefore saw this as the perfect opportunity to achieve this with the addition of solar panels.

Bauder Building Board

Project: Sheringham High School
Location: Sheringham, Norfolk
Roof Area: 1,500m²
Surveyor: PCH Associates
Approved Contractor: R T Roofing
PV Installer: Joju Solar
Fundraising Specialist: Energy4All

The specification

Working closely with the surveyor PCH Associates, Bauder performed a comprehensive roof evaluation survey to identify the full extent of water ingress being experienced and to confirm the suitability of adding solar. The bespoke Bauder survey report highlighted that many of the roof areas needed to be stripped back to the screed, before being waterproofed with 1,500m2 of Bauder’s reinforced bitumen system by R T Roofing.

The result

150 BauderSOLAR PV modules fitted onto the school's roof by electrical installer Joju Solar. It is estimated that post installation, the schoool will generate a minimum of 34.61 Megawatt Hours of solar power each year without any capital expenditure or any disruptions to the school term. Funding for the solar PV array was provided through a community share offer, The Schools’ Energy Co-operative, ensuring both the school and the local community benefited financially from the solar installation whilst also providing clean renewable energy
