Roofing Tender



The Materials Processing Institute was founded as the British Iron & Steel Research Association in 1944, as the central research organisation for the iron and steel industry in the UK. In March 2014 the Institute became incorporated as a standalone business but throughout its history, it has remained committed to the delivery of world class research into industrial processes and crucially, applying this knowledge successfully in the industrial environment.

Many advanced processes which are now standard across industry were first developed at the Institute. This tradition continues with the development and commercialisation of ground-breaking new technologies in materials, processing and energy.

The Institute is looking to achieve a significant reduction in energy costs and the use of carbon-based fuels. The Materials Processing Institute requires the supply and installation of a replacement of the existing roofing on one of its buildings with energy efficient roofing which provides a quantified annual energy saving. The successful bidder will be responsible for provision, supply and preparation of the following:

  • Roofing specification
  • Insulation - 120 mm minimum thickness to achieve U-value of 0.19 (in line with current building regulations). Energy savings must be quantified and the information provided in tonnes of CO2 per annum.
  • Roof covering to include preparation layer and cap sheet
  • Roof Perimeter to be trimmed with GRP trim or equivalent
  • Supply and install of new/refurbished roof outlets
  • Supply and Install counterweighted handrail to full perimeter of roof area
