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.
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
