Mount Gould Hospital

Mount Gould Hospital is part of NHS Livewell Southwest, provides many healthcare services, and is their headquarters.

The multi-building site houses numerous modern and classic buildings and the administration building on Mount Gould Road was recently in dire need of a new roof.

DFR Roofing had been awarded the contract to re-roof this stunning building, and part of the contract included replacing rainwater products.

Paul Douglas, Managing Director of DFR Roofing, called on ARP for help and advice.

The roofing contractor specified that the replacement rainwater system should be low maintenance but in keeping with the character of the building.

ARP’s Drew Robins, Divisional Sales Manager, arranged a site visit to review the existing system and measure the site.

Upon inspection of the site, ARP suggested that the existing cast iron guttering be replaced with Cast Aluminium with its polyester powder-coated colour offering a long-term low maintenance option retaining its colour fastness, therefore requiring less repainting.

The products specified were ARP Legacy Cast Aluminium Moulded No. 46 Ogee 150 x 100 mm gutters, Colonnade 101 mm circular downpipes and Colonnade Hoppers.

As you can see from the images, all colours matched the existing green décor (RAL 6005 Matt).

ARP’s Legacy Cast Aluminium Gutter and Colonnade Downpipes were an ideal solution for this project, as they are made from a modern, natural product which is fully recyclable but non-corrosive and offers a strong and durable system but still affords the aesthetic qualities required for the refurbishment of this building.

Paul Douglas, Managing Director of DFR Roofing, said:

“The product suited the requirements of the client, it was easy to install and the service ARP provided from site survey to product delivery was everything that was required”
