Diamond Light Source

Client: Diamond Light Source
Contractor: NACWL
Sector: Special Projects
Project Value: £195k
Location: Oxfordshire


Diamond Light Source is one of the gems of scientific research in the UK and houses some of the worlds most advanced and expensive equipment. The building suffers from multiple leaks and has been subject to ongoing litigation for some time.


NACWL has undertaken various projects at Diamond Light Source, ranging from leak detections to building modifications to roof replacement works. On one of the projects NACWL were tasked to rectify a historic leak which involved both the original standing seam roof and a subsequent over-roof which housed expensive equipment below. This was a high-risk project due to multiple products and interfaces on a live building environment. We undertook the design, supply and installation of the new roof which rectified the historic water ingress and passed its 24 months defects liability period with no further incidents.
