Yeoman Rainguard Rainwater Systems were first choice when a local rugby club required an attractive yet durable system as part of the club house refurbishment plans.
West Leeds RUFC were over the moon after a second attempt at applying for support from Sport England’s “Inspired Facilities” fund was rewarded with a £74,000 grant.
“The awarded money was great news for the club,” explained Club Chairman, Phil Christopher. “With the original building built in 1974 and costing more time and money to maintain, the fund gave us the opportunity to refresh and replace certain elements of the building.”
The refurbishment work was carried out by S & C Builders of Wortley (Leeds) who along with extensive alterations to the interior of the club house also made a dramatic change to the grounds and exterior.
As well as new Aluminium windows and door sets, rendering, car park and patio resurfacing and disabled access a new durable and stylish Aluminium rainwater system and fascia manufactured and supplied by Yeoman Rainguard was installed.
Yeoman Rainguard installed 75mm dia. down pipes and 125 x 100mm MOG gutters from its eco-friendly SL range. Those were complemented with a Motif and a specially fabricated rainwater hopper with a smooth finish in RAL 7016 – an Anthracite Grey Colour – exactly matching the windows and doors whilst offering a pleasing contrast to the rendering.
The timber fascia to the Club House which is various sizes around the roof line has been clad in bespoke “L” shaped Aluminium Fascia manufactured at Yeoman Rainguard’s workshops, again in a matching Anthracite Grey.
“The whole refurbishment, including the fitting of a sustainable rainwater system will dramatically reduce maintenance costs and also, as the building has become less demanding maintenance wise, will save many hours of work by volunteers.” Concluded Phil.
