For many years now we have been over cladding our buildings with timber, brick and stone cladding to hide the steel outer walls and also fit steel roof tiles to our Apex roofs. We have trialled a green roof which sits on moisture resistant board to insulate it from our out steel roof structure.
The roof has been growing well and is now in its second summer without any root burn or drainage problems. Last year we notice the roof did have meadow grass competing the the sedum, but none so far this year and there has been no other weed problems.
We married the green roof with natural cedar cut in a shiplap pattern to give it a contemporary style which these days could happily sit on a city centre site as well as a more rural or suburban setting.
The addition of the two new buildings has significantly improved the grounds operation area allowing us to fully to comply with our health and safety obligations. As well as meeting the legal side the buildings offer first class garage accommodation to high value kit which would otherwise deteriorate quickly sitting outside.

We have had many Sitesafe products over a number of years. We find Sitesafe helpful with the initial design through to installation and their products have proved to be robust.

Cleveland Sitesafe have provided Fairburn Ings Nature Reserve with three anti-vandal steel hides built to our specification, they have proved to be very successful and stood up to attempted vandalism with little damage, they are also cheaper than similar sized wooden structures and a lot easier to keep clean and maintain.

Since we opened the new visitor centre at Potteric Carr we have seen a significant increase in visitor numbers, people are amazed to hear the story of how the building was constructed and also our staff and volunteers love their new working environment. Working with Joe and his colleagues was a real pleasure and through practical and realistic discussions around project design and procurement, we were able to meet both our budget and open on time.
