Infill To Primary Frame

This uniquely shaped building designed by B&R Architects is on the site of the former Bellerby Theatre in Guildford. Main Contractor Bowmer & Kirkland were tasked with building a new Waitrose food store on the ground floor with 30 apartments and 18 affordable homes on the tapering floors above. Several of these enjoyed roof gardens which are sheltered by high parapet walls constructed from Frameclad SFS.

Think On Top Of The Box

Located in a coastal location, this was a conversion of an existing 3 storey concrete frame building into 9 townhouses. Frameclad provided the SFS infill to form new external walls to the existing levels then added a self-supporting top floor with SFS to give additional floor space to the scheme. Due to the restrictive nature of the site and the need to keep the new loadings of the upper floor to a minimum, SFS was the ideal solution for the developer.

Frameclad’s manufacturing capabilities came into there own when they were asked to produce a separating wall in a distribution warehouse. SFS studs were required to reach a height of 13.8m which proved a challenge but were produced and delivered successfully to a very satisfied client.

Goods Corner

Located in a prominent area of Edinburgh the scheme consisted of 3 blocks of student accommodation. Frameclad supplied all of the frames and floor cassettes to form the three-storey structure. The developer was keen to use some of the previous buildings stonework which were incorporated in the external cladding of the cottage building.

Canterbury Road

Frameclad manufactured all of the internal/external frames for these two interlinked block five-storey residential development. Floors were constructed from lattice joists and also balcony cassettes were supplied to sit inside a hot rolled frame. Access was limited and due to the busy site location deliveries had to be carefully coordinated and time slots hit.
