Pudsey Bus Station

Project Description

Multi award winning project, including :
National Federation of Roofing Contractors Awards 2011 Roofing and Cladding category winner
TeamKal 2010 Best Kalzip project under 1500m2
TeamKal 2010 Best Use of Kalzip Fabrications

Over 1,000sqm of convex and concave smooth curved Kalzip aluminium standing seam roof sheets have been installed on the impressive new Pudsey Bus Station by experienced Teamkal contractor, KGM Roofing (A division of the Lindum Group Limited). Built by Allenbuild Ltd for Metro, the West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive, this futuristically designed canopy roof is attractively finished all round with a continuous ‘true’ curved bull-nosed fascia, also from Kalzip.

Convex taper-curved to a 10 metre radii, the Kalzip sheets form full semicircles on-plan at both ends of the roof - and with Metro keen to have an aesthetically pleasing underside to the bus station’s canopy, the soffits were ingeniously created by using a similar combination of downward facing concave curved Kalzip sheets.

The roof canopy is neatly finished with tightly curved aluminium bull-nosed fascias polyester powder coated to RAL 9006 and an 80mm thick layer of Kalzip Insulation 23 glass quilt sandwiched between the Kalzip soffit and top sheets for rain-sound reduction. Produced using a unique manufacturing process, the ‘true’ curved fascias were designed to be invisibly fixed using a system of bonded butt straps which create a beautifully seamless finish to the roof’s eaves.
