We are delighted to secure our bid to work on the £12m development of The Withens, Stockbridge, where we will provide professional roofing design, and install a high quality, durable single ply roof.
Project: The Withens
Address: The Withens, Stocksbridge Village, Knowsley, Liverpool, L28 1AB
Architect: JDA Architects
Contractor: Bridgestone Construction
Roof Size: 2100m2
Roof system: Sika Sarnafil Single Ply Roof
Installation: Mechanically fixed system
Our role in the project:
As professional roofing experts, our role here at Enviroply Roofing, is to provide a roof that will be durable, long lasting and effective. That’s why we will install a Sika Sarnafil Single Ply Roof, using mechanical fixings to ensure that the roof can withstand wind-speed and lift, as well as all weather conditions. In addition, this type of roof will only need minimal maintenance for the future.
The Withens is an Extra Care and Affordable Rent dementia project, which will be built on open ground in Stockbridge Village, Knowsley, next to the other apartments at Roughsedge House. As an Extra Care project, there are certain criteria that need to be met during the design and construction work.
This project will create 90 new homes including 64 Extra Care apartments, of which 5 will be two bedroomed, and 26 new Extra Care bungalows. The development of new communal and support facilities will also be part of this £12m project.
Aiming to bring more, much needed, supported housing for some of the area’s elderly and vulnerable tenants, this project will be crucial for health and social care development into the future. Knowsley Council is expecting significant rise in the numbers of older people living in the area by 2021, with an increase of more than 1,000 residents aged 90 or above. And this in turn is placing demands on local services. In fact, the Knowsley Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy feel that the increase in the amount of dementia in the area, is directly related to the ageing population.
