New Beginnings...

We are pleased to announce that Glenn Minter has now retired from GRM Roofing.  We wish him every happiness in his well deserved retirement, he will still be employed on a consultancy basis for the next few months and then he is a free man.  

We are therefore equally pleased to announce that Scott Hudson has now taken ownership and is our new Director.  Scott joined us in September 2017, bringing with him over 13 years experience within the industry.  We have every faith that Scott will continue to grow the company whilst maintaining it's personal but professional touch which has enabled us to continue to be leaders within the flat roofing industry, and we wish him every success.

August 2016

Sybil Andrews Academy, Bury St Edmunds

Recently completed, working with Barnes Construction for Suffolk County Council.

A brand new school on the outskirts of Bury St Edmunds, built to accommodate 1,600 students. The project was designed and managed by Concertus Design & Property Consultants on behalf of Suffolk County Council, who wanted the school to act as a benchmark for sustainability with the building's roofs playing an integral part in achieving this through the inclusion of solar panels.

Working closely with the architect and the client, Bauder developed a bespoke specification package that was designed to maximise the solar output from the available roof space and satisfy all relevant local planning conditions.  Four buildings on the school's campus were waterproofed with over 5,000m² of Bauder's reinforced bitumen system, Bauderflex, by GRM Roofing, before having 313 PV modules fitted by Chelsfield Solar; enabling the client to generate at least 74.32 Megawatt Hours of solar power each year.
