Activity 1:

Using the PowerPoint presentation provided, draw and label a Cold Deck and Warm Deck. Drawing can be created using a computer/laptop or drawn by hand (one drawing per A4 sheet as landscape)

Please use colour coding as shown in the diagrams provided and ensure they are clearly labelled. Please try and keep the drawings to the proportions shown where possible

Activity 2:

Using the list of flat roof components provided, produce a word document that includes an image and description of each

Flat roof components:

  • Firring
  • Insulation
  • Cavity Tray
  • Tilt Fillet
  • Insulation
  • Structural Deck
  • Flashing
  • Roofing Felt
  • EDM Roofing



firring is a thin strip of timber that has been cut along its length diagonally so that it tapers, with one end deeper than the other. Firrings are used in the construction of flat roofs to create a fall, ensuring that water runs to the lower side. Typically they are designed to create a final fall of 1:80 (i.e 10mm drop over every 800mm)

Activity 3:

Research the advantages and disadvantages of both the Cold and Warm Deck roofs and report your findings, This can be done using a computer (preferred) or as a written piece of work
