Client: City of Cape Town
Location: Rondebosch Library, Cape Town, South Africa
Scope of work: 1200sqm slate re-roof with Aluminium & Lead flashing details
Rondebosch library was originally designed by George Murray Alexander and the entire building is made from rough Table mountain sandstone. It has high teak doors, windows and stairways and was completed in 1899. It is a 100+ year old building with plenty of history and heritage in the heart of Rondebosch. The old asbestos slate was removed and the Cupa Pizarras (250x500mm) Spanish slate was used in the conventional method for the new covering keeping with the original style and design of the building as well as providing a long lasting replacement for the next 100 years of service to the public and community.
All Ridge capping’s and valley linings were done in aluminium and other more intricate flashings done with Lead.
