Specialist roofing and cladding company, Thornton recently completed Broomlands Primary School in Scotland. As unique as it is innovative the project included the installation of fascia, slashing and gutters.

The Antrim-based company was tasked with building a state-of-the-art roofing structure, spanning an impressive 2800m2. To ensure the structure had exceptional weather resistance and durability to withstand the elements, Thornton employed the use of Omnis’ state of the art Ziplok system.

Additionally, perforated liner sheets with acoustic slabs were used in the construction to control the school’s acoustics. The innovative liner sheets not only improve the acoustic performance of the new school’s gymnasium, but also ensure other classes and local residents are not disturbed by increasing noise levels.

The new roofing design is not only functional, but also proves to be aesthetically impressive. The design includes 45° pitches, ensuring the innovative construction was not just structurally outstanding, but aesthetically impressive.

Paul McErlane, Contracts Manager at Thornton commented: ‘Thornton is incredibly proud to have been involved with this project. It is always gratifying to deliver exceptional results that meet the high standard expected by clients, but to also help improve a building serving the entire community is an added bonus.”

Broomlands Primary School was announced as the winner of the ‘Borders Building Awards’ for best new build in Nov 2018.
