Steel Over Timber, Load Bearing
A superior alternative to a timber frame. The developer needed an alternative to timber frame to prevent costly delays and increased on-site costs, light steel framing was the solution.
Lighter, quicker and more stable LSF delivered these apartments on time and to budget whilst exceeding the client's requirements.
In the heart of contemporary Sutton, surrounded by immense culture and diversity, we are delighted to introduce striking new apartments providing the brightest and lightest homes available on a Shared Ownership Scheme. Windsor House is the newest development undertaken by Optivo, giving potential residents the opportunity to live in the desirable and sought after Borough of Sutton.
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.
