M.I.B. Services has recently won the contract to maintain the Sedum roofs of 7 newly built primary schools in Midlothian.
I have to admit it felt a bit strange doing mowing and strimming up on roofs !!!!. Before we could even get near the roof, we had to undertake a "working at heights" and a "safety harness " training course, a big thank you to Gavin at Pendrech Height Services for his excellent training course.
We are very pleased to have won this work, it gives us a new market to explore and lots of new opportunities. Our customer is one of the biggest construction and facilities management company's in the world.
Below is some photos and a little about what we will be doing for the contract.
Yes it does sound silly mowing a roof and we certainly got some strange looks from passersby, but this is just one method of maintenance works for Living roofs
Sedum or living roofs are quite a new construction styling to the UK market, and I hope we will see many more schools, universities, colleges, NHS Doctors Practices being constructed in this way.
