Sheringham High School is a secondary school with academy status located in Norfolk that 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.

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 school then had 150 BauderSOLAR PV modules fitted onto the roof by electrical installer Joju Solar. As a result of this PV install the school will be able to generate at least 34.61 Megawatt Hours of solar power each year, all 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
