Case Study: York's Clifford Tower Built Anew Thanks To Leading Specialist PermaRoof
In November 2021 – January 2022, PermaRoof Commercial were brought in by Modern Roofs Limited to help with part of the renovation of the historic Clifford Tower in York.

BriefingWire.com, 7/28/2022 - The brief:

In November 2021 – January 2022, we were brought in by Modern Roofs Limited to help with part of the renovation of the historic Clifford Tower in York. The prestigious project, which was sanctioned by English Heritage, involved a full rebuilding with modern materials.

Adding difficulty to the refurbishment was the worldwide stock materials shortages meaning strong communication and feedback in the logistics chain were vital to have the required materials available when they were needed, and for the project to be completed.

The solution:

At the beginning of the project, the tower was little more than a few walls. Once beams had been installed, the roof was ready to be laid. When suggesting the right roofing system, the team knew that longevity and durability needed to be at the forefront of the decision. After meeting with the architects, the team then suggested and ultimately used the RubberGard EPDM as the system of choice.

Modern Roofs installed the chosen Firestone RubberGard EPDM system, covering approximately 300m squared, which ensured all round protection from the elements that would last for at least decades to come.

During the project, the heritage and age of the structure was always front of mind. To this end, full technical support was on hand to complete the project and to offer solutions should any challenges arise.

On top of this, multiple other trades were carrying out work on the site simultaneously as requested by English Heritage. Throughout the project, Sunny and his team were able to cooperate with those on the site and maintain a steady flow of products, as and when they were needed. As a result, the project was able to be completed smoothly in just a few weeks.

The testimonial:

Jason Jayes, director of Modern Roofs Limited, said: “Naturally, making sure this project was completed as smoothly and with as few setbacks as possible was crucial.

“The York Clifford Tower is a site of historical importance that was trusted to our hands after centuries of wear. We needed to make sure the materials used, and installation process, was of the highest quality, to ensure the tower would remain repaired for the decades and maybe even centuries still yet to come.

“The York Clifford Tower is a site of historical importance that’s regeneration was entrusted into our hands. We wanted this new iteration of the tower to be a landmark sight in York and so needed to make sure the materials used, and installation process, was of the highest quality to ensure the new tower would remail rebuilt for the decades and centuries still yet to come.
