John Lewis, Nottingham

The Salt Town team were contracted to perform immediate repairs to a John Lewis store in Nottingham experiencing water ingress complications and posed health and safety risks. 

Client & Requirements 

Having already established a strong relationship with the organisation, the client approached Salt Town Contractors with several repairs that required urgent assistance. 

Upon inspection, the roof was inaccessible to staff members. There were several health and safety issues posed by the roof, alongside the apparent risk of water ingress to the rest of the roof area. 

The client had also identified various aesthetic improvements, including removing and replacing existing flooring areas and reinstating single-ply systems underneath the area. 

Solution & Delivery

After conducting a detailed survey for the client, Salt Town Contractors highlighted 24 defects to the SIKA-trocal (single ply) roof, various cleaning and preparation activities, and the application of finishing details on visible kerb areas. 

It was unclear when the system’s installation was first instated, so the team began establishing a safe environment to work – conducting RAMS (Risk And Method Statements) and liaising with key Health and Safety personnel. 

Upon completion of the initial H&S procedures, Salt Town Contractors started cleaning and drying the roof area, applying a base coat of polyurethane liquid plastics, and inserting DRP-reinforced matting.

Once each area had been cured and checked for defects, the team set about replacing the sacrificial layer, timbers and flags.

Results & Future

Once completed, the client was safe in the knowledge that the areas were free from previous health and safety risks, and the roof was also free of any water ingress complications. 

Salt Town Contractors applied their industry knowledge to complete the job in a cost-conscious and time-effective manner, establishing COVID-secure practices across every stage of the work’s completion.
