Generation UNI Roof makes history with Kew Gardens

Press Release


Generation UK demonstrate why Generation UNI Roof is the Market leader in Temporary Roofing.

Generation UK were tasked to provide all access and Temporary Roof equipment for a project to bring the amazing Royal Botanic Kew Gardens Glasshouse back to its former glory!  Kew Gardens Temperate House opened in 1862 and to date is the largest surviving Victorian glasshouse in the world.

To bring this incredible Grade I listed building back to its wonder it took over 4 years. The bulk of the project comprised of the removal and replacement of all of the original glass panes, as well as repair and maintenance of the steel frame. Working over such a long time frame meant that our client would be working all year round, whatever the weather. The Generation UNI Roof meant that work could continue all year and kept the project to its time-scales come rain or shine.

The equipment formed three different structures. The most technically challenging being the 8000m2 all season Temporary Roof system; the UNI Roof spanned 50m over the central glasshouse. The roofing showcased its compatibility, versatility, weather protection and safe and quick erection; showing how the Generation UNI Roof is so much more than just a Temporary Roofing structure. The customer knew that such a large and important job needed the help of the company that supply’s the market leader in Temporary Roofing; The Generation UNI Roof.

Generation Frimley worked closely with their client to provide over 700 tons of equipment, this was delivered directly to the site of Kew gardens using Generations large and reliable fleet.
