Roof Refurbishment, Christ’s Hospital School, Horsham

At Christ’s Hospital School in Horsham, Sussex, a high performance and cost effective roof refurbishment system was required to repair a two-tier pitched roof. Attended by ‘bouncing bomb’ developer Sir Barnes Wallis, many of the school buildings were rebuilt with Wallis as Secretary and Chairman of The Council of Almoners – corporate Trustee of Christ’s Hospital Foundation

Product brief:
