Overslade House, Northampton
Northampton - This technically challenging project involved the initial removal of a traditional pitched roof from a four story 1980’s Social Housing Accommodation Block and the subsequent installation of a new load-bearing storey plus the associated supporting Hot Rolled Steel grillage, new external lift shaft and associated landing areas.
The quality of “as-built” information on a refurbishment scheme can be a little patchy and this contract was no exception – relying on numerous site surveys in order to design and locate the various elements on the correct positions on the remaining structure. Working closely with the main contractor – Engie – we were able to achieve full design requirement on the programme and to the agreed costs. Despite the supporting structure being of dubious build quality and random location, we were able to utilise the latest design facilities to provide a rooftop living space exactly as the client had envisaged.

Avion Court Avion Court is a brand new development made up of 137 contemporary residential units and located in Crawley with close proximity to Gatwick Airport.
This former 1970s office tower has undergone an extensive transformation and benefits from secured on-site parking, concierge service, bike storage and improved landscaping.
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.
