Retail Distribution Flat Roofing

Roofing Consultancy for Retail Distribution

Major retailers operate at a massive scale and their growing need for effective distribution space means these projects are all about speed and efficiency. Large buildings have large roofs which need to perform well throughout a fixed lifetime so as not to interfere with operations.

AccuRoof takes a collaborative approach to distribution centre roofing design, working with the client’s designers and main contractor to deliver the roofing package.

Key challenges for retail distribution clients

Buildings are crucial to retail distribution operations, so they must ensure operational efficiency throughout their fixed lifespan.
With large quantities of valuable stock, plus equipment and even robotics to protect, the priority is to drain water off the roof as efficiently as possible.
Distribution buildings must meet all the parameters of an effective design.
All of this must be carried out within a tight programme, and usually at a tight price.

Benefits of Working with AccuRoof on retail distribution roofing projects

With large buildings, the programme frequently dictates the specification. The key factor is working to the building’s life expectancy. As a system agnostic supplier, AccuRoof can work with your preferences to choose the most appropriate systems and materials and supply everything the contractor needs to deliver.
Designing drainage on large roofs is a particularly complex skill. AccuRoof’s technical team has years of experience in large scale projects and can advise on and supply siphonic systems where necessary and appropriate.
All the systems we recommend are BROOF(t4) classified to meet fire performance requirements in most situations. Some scenarios may also require compartmentation to protect valuable stock, and this can also be accommodated.
AccuRoof’s network of large specialist subcontractors are experienced in delivering distribution projects. SIG Roofing’s distribution network of over 100 branches across the UK allows for swift, local delivery and a mechanism for resolving any issues (such as damaged stock) so that delays on site are minimised.
