Cladding works progressing well on site in St Ives

Published on Friday 21 February 2020

Cladding works progressing well on site in St Ives. The client required a product that met their high standards for this development and therefore the cladding has come direct from Canada! We are very pleased with the aesthetics of the building which compliments the building that was demolished to allow this scheme to progress.

Plastering works are also progressing well on site with block A ready for mist coat and second fix trades to being in the coming weeks

Superstructure progressing well at Ropsley Village Hall

Published on Thursday 6 February 2020

Our project to design and construct a new multi-function village hall in Ropsley started in October 2019 and the site has already seen a big change with the 6m high steel frame being erected before the Christmas break. The cast in-situ ground floor slab was complete in early January which has allowed the external walls to progress 2 weeks ahead of programme. The next month will see the walls reach roof level to allow the roof structure to be installed which includes pre-fabricated roof trusses and timber rafters to form the vaulted ceiling over the main hall. We are aiming to have the building completely water tight by the beginning of May so the internal works can commence.

Plots 7 & 8, Osprey Place, March

Published on Wednesday 5 February 2020

Work to construct 2 steel frame dwellings in March, Cambridgeshire is progressing well as we get closer to dropping the scaffolding.

These dwellings are constructed using a lightweight steel frame structure for the external walls, internal walls, upper floor structure and roof structure and took just 7 days to erect for both dwellings. The external fa├žade is then clad with a cement board and PIR insulation board before being covered with an external masonry skin of facing brickwork and blockwork with cladding. The warm roof construction is formed using a single ply membrane with dummy standing seams to create a cost effective alternative to metal cladding. Grey UPVC windows have been installed and the roof is near completion to enable the scaffold to be dropped and external works to progress.

This project is part of a larger 32 unit site and Phase 2, consisting of a further 12 units, is looking to start on site around April time with around 50% of the site being formed using the lightweight steel frame construction and the other 50% being formed using traditional masonry.
