Inflation day for innovative roof at Lowestoft school
A topping-out ceremony was held yesterday to celebrate the completion of an innovative roof at Suffolk's newest high school.
The Teflon-based roof was inflated into its final place at Pakefield High School, near Lowestoft, by Waveney MP Peter Aldous and Graham Newman, Suffolk County Council portfolio holder for children, schools and young people's services. The roof tops the high school's first building, which should take year seven and eight pupils in June.
Built by Barnes Construction, the building is part of the first phase to build a new high school, which should be fully up and running by 2014 with 950 students. The roof was made by Novum Structures of Diss.
