Replacing a 1500 sqm Roof at Folkstone Garden Centre in Kent

Ebtech Glasshouse Systems have completed the re-roofing in composite sandwich panelling of 1,500 sqm of a widespan four bay glasshouse at Folkstone Garden Centre.

The work was carried out whilst the centre continued to operate, therefore a close working relationship was key to making it a success.


Removing the existing Polycarbonate roofing sheets, the area was clad in 120mm thick sandwich panels incorporating light panels and the side wall and gable apexes in 80mm.

Health & safety was very well marshalled by our on-site project manager, who dealt with all day-to-day challenges.

The most pleasing thing about the project was the comments passed on by the building control officer when he came to visit the project: “May I take this opportunity to compliment the finish quality of the vast roof, which you removed and replaced with the new roof and all the associated works involved.

“The quality shone through and today was probably a good day for the final inspection, due to the inclement weather to test the roof's integrity, which it sailed through.

"The installation team on site were impeccable and the Centre Manager's conversation reiterated my own opinion, that the team had worked throughout with a professional manner and dealt with an open trading centre with ease and co-operation with the centre staff.

Brilliant work and a real tribute to your business, quality installation using quality materials and a quality team! Andy Benzies, MICWCI Site Inspector

“Please reiterate to the team my comments, and congratulate them on getting a report from a Building Inspector. Well deserved!“


These comments were echoed by the consultants: “INVVU Construction Consultants were the Principal Designers/Project Managers for this project. We were extremely impressed with the professionalism, quality of work and overall working practices from Ebtech Glasshouse Systems Ltd.

“Our Principal Designer, Christopher J. Lamb, afforded them the title of the 'best roof fitters he's ever worked with' - and that is some accolade - but credit where credit is due! Congratulations Ebtech on a job well done! “
