We worked with the University of Surrey on their new £45m development installing a circular standing seam roof.
We worked on three buildings for the University of Surrey as part of their £45m development for these state of the art facilities for the veterinary centre. As part of these works we installed a circular standing seam roof to the VSC building which could have led to potential issues, but though careful planning and designing we were able to overcome these and delivered the project as per our client’s requirements.

Sage Roofing takes responsibility for the greenhouse gases we cannot avoid emitting by using the Climatecare offset calculator to determine how many tonnes of CO2 we produce in our trading year. To achieve Carbon Neutral status we pay Climatecare to reduce the equivalent amount of CO2 in another part of the world by investing that money into emission reduction projects replacing fuel hungry inefficient technologies with efficient low-carbon technologies in developing countries. Take a look at the Climatecare website to see the advances being made; from the simple provision of efficient cooking stoves to full blown wind and hydro power schemes.
Since its launch in 2009 it is gratifying to see that SSIP is already making inroads into reducing the burden of bureaucracy faced by small and medium sized businesses. Even more encouraging still is that the forum has further plans to help suppliers and those who buy services from these suppliers, maximise the benefits that SSiP can offer. Through making information about a supplier’s certification available to buyers, this will further eliminate the need for suppliers to subscribe to multiple competence schemes and we start to embrace SSIP’s core philosophy of mutual recognition.
