Saint-Gobain’s latest acquisition boosts off-site offering

SAINT-Gobain UK & Ireland has completed the acquisition of SIG Roofspace Solutions, a firm which specialises in panelised roofing and room-in-roof solutions for housebuilders.

SIG Roofspace Solutions will now be known as Roofspace and boost Saint-Gobain’s off-site capabilities.

Mike Chaldecott, Saint-Gobain UK & Ireland CEO said, “We’re delighted to welcome Roofspace to Saint-Gobain. They are a great business that provides solutions to customers that saves them time and streamlines the construction process. We know that the construction industry has to be more efficient, more productive, more innovative and embrace off-site manufacturing. Roofspace are already offering customers these benefits and have delivered roofs for over 2,500 new build homes in the last year.

“Roofspace manufacture their off-site solutions within factory conditions before delivering to their customer’s site. This service means that Roofspace can install multiple roof packages a day rather than one roof taking 10-12 weeks. This type of construction, manufactured off-site, ensures greater control and accuracy of the finished roof solution and ultimately enhances the performance and comfort of the home for the home owner.

“Roofspace further accelerates our capability to serve the rapidly expanding off-site manufacturing sector adding to our expertise which already includes our Pasquill business, and their timber roof-trusses, Scotframe’s timber-frame houses and Saint-Gobain steel-frame systems.”
