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.
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.
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.
