Exeter College Cohen Quad - Oxford

The construction of a prestigious new college building with teaching and student accommodation maintaining the original listed Victorian fascade. The building was designed by Alison Brooks Architects to have a stark contrast between the old and contemporary new curved Stainless Steel building.

The roof construction was developed in close conjunction with Roles Broderick to facilitate a curved shingle rainscreen cladding with the waterproofing layer below. The entire roof build up from secondary steel supports to the finished Rimex Paladin Stainless Steel shingles was installed by the Roles Broderick team.

The buildup consisted of: profiled steel structural deck, two layers of Foamglas insulation with hot bitumen layer, perforated Aluminium acoustic decking and Champagne and Bronze contrasting diamond shingles. Our total roofing envelope package also included anodised Aluminium dormer window cladding in an interlocking panel system with green and felt flat roof areas.

Roles Broderick are proud to be the Winners in the National Roofing Federation award in the "Hard Metal Roofing" category 2017 for this project.

"The Yurts" Walmer Yard - London W11

Walmer yard forms a discreet and private set of four interlocking houses, the building was designed by world renowned architect Peter Salter and is his first residential development. Roles Broderick were chosen to develop and install the Copper clad yurts to the building.

The cladding comprises a natural copper formed in diamond shingle tiles made on site to fit the complex geometric shape of the Yurts. Traditional longstrip techniques were used for the roof elements and separated from the tile cladding by a bespoke eaves details that delineated the roof from the wall.

The project required a close interaction between the Roles Broderick team and the architect to achieve the bespoke pattern and lines that were required. The roofing package also included bespoke Copper rainwater goods and Terne Coated Stainless Steel capping details.
