Educational Building Solutions

MRC’s new build and refurbishment systems have been successfully specified and installed throughout the world on many educational projects. Our single source solutions provide you REAL choice to create beautiful, sustainable, long lasting, low maintenance, durable, transformational spaces, for shared communities providing the very best learning environment for children and adults.

MRC’s range of Metal Roofing & Cladding, Thermal Waterproofing and Renewable Green Roof systems provide superior performance assurances in the following areas, that are essential for any high quality educational project:-


  • Thermally efficient systems with R-Values of up to 10 (m2.K/W) achievable which reduces the carbon foot print of the buildings, but also increases the thermal performance of the building resulting in reducing energy bills for cooling or heating.
  • Acoustic systems with high performing built up metal roofing systems with independently tested results up to 48dB sound reduction as a standard and Sound Absorption Co-Efficient: NRC – 0.95 to ASTM c 423-01 – Class A Sound absorption, therefore reducing the impact of outside noise within the classroom.
  • Green Roofing & Living Wall reducing the impact of urban heat islands, reducing the stress on underground water management systems and improving air quality.
  • ‘Cool Roof’ thermal coatings for refurbishment of flat roofs, metal pitched roof and asbestos roof sheeting provides an up to 20 year waterproofing with the benefits of reflecting the suns rays and reducing the temperature in the classroom.
  • SlimLine perimeter systems minimising the potential solar gain, providing sleek cutting edge design, without impacting the air tightness of the roof construction which can often be the case with the use of traditional hot rolled stub sections.
  • Rainwater harvesting systems recycle the water for toilets or even drinking water and Solar panels or Photovoltaic cells generate power to be used within the building reducing the draw on the power network.
  • Flat to Pitch Roof conversions that provide the opportunity to change a flat roof to a pitched roof WITHOUT removing the existing roof construction.


MRC provides excellence in Solutions for the Education sector, all backed with the Guardian Warranty ensuring design, materials, installation and maintenance for up to 20 Years, whether for New Build or Refurbishment projects.
