7 Day Factory Roof Replacement

Out with the old and in with the new! A complete factory roof replacement of 1,000m2 was completed in just 7 days!

The existing roof was heavily deteriorated due to the corrosive manufacturing environment inside, making it unsafe to walk on and a challenge to replace without lengthy shut-down periods for the company. Ortech has developed a new ‘Demolition frame’ which allowed safe, trafficable access around its perimeter for tradesmen to prepare each module for removal.

The new Ortech modules were pre-assembled and stacked at ground level, with roof decking already fixed, ready for crane hoisting with the Durra Lifting Frame.

While also providing fast and safe installation, the Ortech ceiling system was an obvious solution to protecting the steel work from the factory’s corrosive environment.
