The Lighthouse Wards at Princess Elizabeth Hospital, Guernsey comprise three single storey wards containing 60 continuing care units for elderly patients. The tiled roofs on the the buildings had failed just five years after installation. Architects Naftel Associates chose to replace the roof with zinc standing seam.
The new NATO headquarters in Brussels has the largest zinc roof in Europe. The roof spans a total surface of no less than 35,000m2 of NedZink NOVA Pro-Tec standing seam bays in seemingly unmanageable lengths of 26 metres. A challenging project in many respects.
