Splashes Leisure Centre Gillingham

RNB was appointed to install a 164 kw flat roof installation at the splashes new build leisure centre in September 2023, with Wilmott Dixon as the main contractor. With this being a flat roof system we had the complex issue of working out how to safely load out 23 tonnes of equipment and ballast onto the new roof area on a single day without disrupting the areas where all the solar was to be installed. Due to this being a felt roof moving pallets of ballast and equipment once placed was not an option, so load calculations had to be made. Working closely with Wilmott Dixon, Thanet cranes and the structural designers we was able to come up with a plan that worked for all parties .with the height of this building and working throughout November and December weather was not on our side but again RNB’s team of engineers managed to get this installation completed on schedule , and the end product looks amazing.

RNB are looking forward to working on the next project with Wilmott Dixon and are currently tendering for them at present.
