Recently, the team at Contour NZ has been occupied with an enormous project on 83 Beach Road, Richmond. The project involved supplying & installing steel roof sheets for an industrial roof replacement for our customer, Goleman Group. The project itself spanned a whopping 6,000m2, illustrating just how big this mammoth installation was.
Why Contour was the perfect candidate for the job
Contour began in 1993 with a core focus on roofing, which was closely followed by the eventual development of other products such as aluminium joinery. In 2021, the stars & values aligned between the two companies, and thus Contour was acquired by Stratco. With both companies boasting stellar reputations and a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies involved, partnering with Contour was the natural choice for Goleman Group! Sourcing local manufacturers and local reroofing contractors meant that the ability to complete this project within the timeframe was feasible.
Which steel roof sheets did Contour use?
To complete the job, contour used Stratco900, which is one of the best corrugated sheets for roofing. This profile contains notable attributes that auditioned perfectly for this humongous task. One of the key benefits of using Stratco900 is its superior spanning capabilities. For this specific job, it was a requirement that the profile was able to span 2.2m. Stratco900 has an internal span length of up to 2200mm for 0.40 BMT, whilst the 0.55mm BMT option can span up to 2800mm for roofing applications. With this lengthy span also comes the economic benefit due to the need for fewer sheets to complete the task. Additionally, the deep 37mm profile delivers excellent water-carrying capacity, solidifying the decision to use the Stratco900 Roofing Sheet. This installation was reinforced with Bremick Fasteners and utilised a Thermakraft Covertek 407 Underlay to manage condensation & water vapour transfer.
Beyond the direct benefits of Stratco900, Contour has a manufacturing facility in Nelson, where they conveniently manufacture the profile that was needed. This ultimately simplified the process of transporting the 2.2m long sheets and removed the element of complexity in terms of logistics.

How Contour pulled it off
Executing this monumental project required a concerted effort from a diverse team, spanning from roofers to cranage experts. The crews from Adams Crane Ltd and Lift N Shift both supplied cranage for the project to deliver the sheets to the roof, whilst the latter also provided trucking for the transportation of the sheets. To ensure the safety of everyone on-site, Contour collaborated with Maxsafe, who provided harness systems and a fall prevention safety plan. Tasman Bay Scaffold also helped and supplied edge protection, meaning everyone was ready to get started! With the all-clear, Contours reroofing contractors, TJ’s Roofing, went ahead and got started on the replacement, completing the installation within the specified timeframe!
