MacIntosh Court – Roof Replacement Covering Supplier

To agree the approved budget of £850,000 for the replacement of the main roof serving the building.

MacIntosh Court is Grade II 1970s built sheltered housing scheme in Streatham. The building’s brick structure, with a flat roof, was considered a highly successful modular construction experiment when designed by architect Kate MacIntosh who started work for the Council in 1969.

Over the past 4 years, the Council has invested in the building by replacing windows and doors, the communal heating and hot water system, along with kitchen and bathroom in homes. However, the flat roof structure has had numerous issues and there has been reports of leaks from the roofs. The roof is in urgent need of a replacement covering.
