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.

Case Studies

Steel Over Timber

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

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.
