Description

We have a long track record of successfully installing our Haki temporary roofing system, to various high profile projects in the UK and Ireland. Relying on this expertise we were engaged by PJ Hegarty to supply scaffold access and temporary roofing, to allow restoration works of the Dargan Wing of the National Gallery of Ireland.

The project required intensive design input due listed building status and the entire scaffold structure had to be free standing. Our solution involved the utilisation of extra width buttress bays and kentledge to secure the support structure.

We then installed of our Haki 750 roofing system and weather proof Kedar roof sheeting. Providing watertight temporary roofing protection was essential given the movement of priceless pieces of art as part of the refurbishment works.
