Weekly Blog – 28

This week the team have been busy concentrating on our individual projects, with a focus on getting various applications ready for Planning and Listed Building Consent.

A CPD through the RIBA gave us new insight on slate, with 95% of slate not being acceptable or fit for purpose on our buildings, which illustrates the importance of why slaters need to get sufficient training to prevent various problems with the roofs such as checkerboarding and too much moisture leading to moss growth and deterioration. Fine examples of excellent slating on buildings can be seen on Grade II Listed Physics Laboratory at University of Bristol and Christ College in Wales.
