Aluminium gutters, facias, soffit – proven solutions for the education sector

With many years of experience working alongside the education sector, Marley Alutec’s aluminium rainwater drainage systems are sustainable, easy to install, and have a functional life expectancy of 50 years with minimal maintenance. Our innovative solutions include:

Urmston Grammar School, where our ‘fit and forget’ solution was used to completely refurbish the building’s roof, required due to nail fatigue. Replacing the exiting PVC and Cast-Iron rainwater system, our gutter, downpipe and fascia products provided a unified and aesthetically suitable replacement. View full case study here

Hornsea School and Language College, where we worked closely with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council to replace the rainwater and eaves systems along its flat roofline with a system guaranteed to last the entire 40 year estimated life span of the building. Continuous close collaboration with the installation subcontractor and council was key to the success of this project. View full case study here 

St Michael’s School, Southfield’s new extension included, after consulting with the architect, our aluminium fascia and soffit, as well as the specified aluminium rainwater products. The Evoke fascia and soffit replaced the originally specified timber fascia to ensure that the whole system achieved maximum longevity. View full case study here 

South Holderness Technology College, where our expert knowledge helped overcome their asbestos problem. Working with our technical department, the council and installer used our fascia and soffit system that fixed into the external cladding, rather than the asbestos itself.  View full case study here

St Mary’s Primary School in Larkhall was damaged by fire and our rainwater and eaves system used in a stunning restoration. Built in 1872, it was important that materials contributed to maintaining the traditional external façade whilst also complementing the new build extension, providing the bridge between old and new.

Leicester’s Centre for Medicine presented a real rainwater drainage challenge with its visually stunning glass-roofed atria. Complex calculations and bespoke components had to be made to cope with the cascading run-off and demands of the Category 3 standard roof. View full case study here
