Roof completed on new Ongo office in Scunthorpe

The latest phase of the construction of the new Ongo office building in the town centre of Scunthorpe has now been finished.

Local contractor Britcon (UK) is carrying out the construction of the head office and appointed Scunthorpe-based Ashbridge Roofing to construct the roof. The roof of the building is now roof tight, which took five weeks to complete.

The roof has been designed and built so that it’s strong enough to carry the plant and machinery required to service the building. Solar panels will also be installed on the flat roof which will provide around 20% of the energy use of the building.

Commercial Manager Graham Alcock, from Ashbridge Roofing, said: “The new Ongo office will be one of the central focus points in Scunthorpe town and we are proud to have been involved in this project. We had eight staff working to ensure we completed the roofing on time and in budget”.

Most recently Ashbridge Roofing re-roofed the grade II listed Victoria Mills in Grimsby for Lindum Construction and is currently carrying out over a million pounds worth of work for a local housing reroofing scheme in Scunthorpe.

The next phase of the project is for the block work to be completed, followed by the fitting of external cladding. Once the external cladding is completed the perimeter roof covering detail will be finished and this should be around Feb – Mar 18, with Ongo staff due to move in from May onwards.
