Where existing flat roofs are starting to fail or require upgrading, one option to consider is the creation of a new pitched, or curved, over-roof which can be constructed quickly and cost effectively using lattice trusses.
The lightweight lattice over-roofing system avoids the need to strengthen the existing roof structure and can give an existing building a much-needed facelift, often at a fraction of new build costs.
The new lightweight trusses can be spaced at much wider centres than other over-roof systems, resulting in fewer penetrations and fixings into the existing structure.
The new lattice trusses are installed to span across the building and provide a range of benefits for the building owner, including improved water run-off and enhanced building insulation.
The additional space created under the new structure can also be used to house building services making usable space available elsewhere in the structure.
If you require any further information, our specialist steel beam engineers can provide expert advice in the design of trusses for use in over- roofing projects both large and small.
