Case Studies


Debenham High School

Debenham High School became an Academy in 2011 and inherited buildings dating back to 1960s, including those with several leaking roofs.

Langley worked alongside Debenham High School and Archer Building Consultancy to produce extensive condition reports and specifications to facilitate the securing of funds for refurbishment through the CIF. The bespoke design included multiple tapered insulation schemes and a redesigned external drainage system to improve the drainage and reduce the stress on the building fabric being caused by standing water.

The addition of new insulation and energy efficient ParaDome rooflights provide a significant improvement to both the schools energy costs and ambient conditions throughout the year.

James Archer, Archer Building Consultancy commented “We worked collaboratively with Langley and assisted with the successful provision of specific technical elements for this Academy’s Education Fund Agency (EFA) funding application comprising risk assessments, detailed costs and contingencies”

RT Roofing Services, a Langley Approved Contractor, completed both phases of the refurbishment during term time. RT Roofing undertook an excellent installation and, along with Archer Building Consultancy, considerately managed the project from logistical planning through to onsite safeguarding, to ensure that the school suffered minimal disruption throughout.

Debenham High School’s Business Manager commented “Langley actively helped us to solve the problems we had with our roof. Throughout the project I felt that we had honest, practical advice every step of the way”

Debenham High School now has complete peace of mind that their Academy roof is covered by an independent insurance backed guarantee of 20 Years.
