Project details


Pasquill supplied over 1,000 sq.m. of pitched roof panels and over 150 sp.m. of flat roof panels as part of a bespoke solution to achieve a specified U-value of 0.15W/m²K. The project presented Pasquill with quite a challenge in the form of the building’s roof hip ends, which necessitated specially shaped panels.

Product Highlights

Value engineering on the project revealed that the SIPS panels originally specified would not create as much of a value for money solution as that offered by Pasquill. The resulting roofing configuration is (from the top) tiles on battens on felt, followed by Pasquill’s pre-insulated panels incorporating:

  • Counter battens
  • A breather membrane
  • Mitek Posi-Joists™
  • Isover mineral wool insulation between rafters
  • A polythene vapour control barrier
  • An OSB underlining

Customer testimonial

Phil Hughes

Director, Abbott Construction

“We are familiar with Pasquill’s excellent reputation but had not worked with the company before. We are very pleased with the cost savings the company’s panels have produced for us.”
