Maggie’s Cancer Care Centre

Award winning project completed by Teams Roofing Limited.

RIBA Regional Award Stirling Prize 2014- Maggies Cancer Care Centre, Freeman Hospital, Newcastle upon Tyne

“No Maggie’s Centre is ever anything but interesting. This one has a Japanese style grid underlying the structure and the way internal divisions are dealt with, but that never takes precedence.

The centre has the Maggie’s trademark sense of warmth; its nurturing, protective ideal mirrored in the way the earth is drawn up round it into berms. Exposed concrete mass, natural ventilation, low G-value glazing and shading roof forms allow generous visual connection to the external area without overheating. It is also connected the hospital’s district heating and has 60m2 of photovoltaics – thus its Regional Sustainability Award.”

Teams Roofing appointed Roofing and Cladding Contractor for the Durham Town Hall re-development works, Durham City

June 24, 2014 | By |

Durham County Council have appointed Teams Roofing under their Framework contract to provide all of the roofing and cladding to the sensitive raised building adjacent the Indoor Market above the Durham Town Hall Function Suite. Due to its prestigious location above a fully furnished Town Hall Function Suite, great efforts have gone into the planning and a fully tented scaffold is to be provided above and a scaffold and protection below the roof area. The works are above a beautiful original glass rooflight within the function suite to provide additional difficulty in the works. Coupled with the fact this raised building is above other fragile roofs and has a large Crysotile removal required of existing coverings, in the heart of Durham Town Centre, the works will present challenges for the entire construction team. Teams Roofing will be providing a new Kingspan Optimo cladding system, Kingspan Tile support roofing, with Welsh Heather reclaimed slate installed on battens above, Kingspan Topdeck IKO Armouplan lined panels to the lower roof, new bespoke flashings, finishes, lead gutters and decorate lead ridge and hip features.
