Store and Accommodation

In a build of key significance to supermarket giant Waitrose, Frameclad were chosen to supply their bespoke, precision engineered light steel framing solutions. The project resulted in a development of 48 stylish residential apartments above a 36,000 ft2 retail unit, expertly crafted in accordance with delivery requirements, building restrictions and the client vision.

Situated on the site of the former Bellerby Theatre in Guildford, Surrey, this development brought high-end supermarket Waitrose back to the town after a 40 year absence. With the large retail unit on the ground floor, this project has a combination of 30 apartments and 18 affordable homes on five tapering storeys above.

Case Studies

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.

Goods Corner

Located in a prominent area of Edinburgh the scheme consisted of 3 blocks of student accommodation. Frameclad supplied all of the frames and floor cassettes to form the three-storey structure. The developer was keen to use some of the previous buildings stonework which were incorporated in the external cladding of the cottage building.
