Many of the building in Paarden Eiland still have asbestos containing roofs. Many landlords are eager to have their roofs replaced with a more environmentally friendly product.

Due to the proximity to the ocean the correct material selection is imperative to ensure the maximum life span of the roof sheeting. For this project the sheeting had an AZ200 coating. This type of coating is recommended for highly corrosive environments.

To maximise natural light transmission translucent sheeting was installed in the roof plane. The glass was replaced with translucent sheeting to allow further light in. The product used not only lets light in to a facility but also block the heat from entering the facility. Natural lighting reduces energy use.
