Warehouse roofing project evokes praise all round

When a leading retailer had to extend its current warehousing facility, one of the project’s key components was the massive industrial roof and the installation of the insulation. This is of vital importance in the current changing South African climate. The supply of Africa Thermal Insulation’s (ATI’s) Alucool 75mm White was managed by GMM Projects and Design, headed by company director, Gavin Minnaar.

“MJC Industrial Roofing had won the tender and I in turn had recommended the use of Africa Thermal Insulation’s (ATI’s) Alucool to the team at MJC Industrial Roofing, because of Alucool’s excellent thermal and environmental properties.
The non-combustible A/A1/1 fire rating which is also registered on the Thermal Insulation Products and Systems Association of South Africa (TIPSASA) as well as their product fire registration list. In addition, ATI’s has an unmatched customer service,” comments Minnaar.

Daniel Janse van Rensburg, who is the contracts manager at MJC Industrial Roofing, says: “It is so easy doing business with Gavin Minnaar from GMM and Bennie Lombard from ATI’s KwaZulu-Natal branch, as you really feel like you are part of a much bigger team. We were always kept in the loop with everything at all times.”

He also highlighted the unique product benefits which appealed to them as industrial roofing specialists, including ATI’s:
• 15-year product warranty from the date of manufacture.
• Short lead times and onsite support.
• Environmental advantages coupled with being SANS428 tested, with an A/A1/1 non-combustible rating.
• Suitable for use in any building type.

Project in full swing

“Although the project was running smoothly, it would not be possible without the dedication of GMM Projects and ATI in KwaZulu-Natal,” said Janse van Rensburg.

“Working with Bennie and his team is a dream, especially since the project had an incredibly tight completion date. To ensure delivery, GMM and ATI collaborated on coordinating the supply, ensuring that the cutting lists were placed on time and that the space constraints were mitigated by ensuring that the 75mm White Alucool was delivered to the site at the right time, in the correct quantity and in good order.

“In conclusion, working with such a dedicated team has made our jobs as contractors that much easier, as both ATI and GMM came highly recommended, and the reasons are obvious,” he comments.
