Oakmere – Chester Road

This project is an excellent example of how load bearing Light gauge Steel Frame can be used to great effect in domestic housing.  The benefits of speed of build and factory-built accuracy ensured that this difficult project went to plan.

The site was tight and made access difficult – the working windows for erecting the frames were equally tight with whole units being built over weekend periods on occasion to facilitate and assist programme.

Panelised roof system provided weather tight habitable space immediately upon install. The designs were enhanced rather than compromised by the use of the Frameclad Load Bearing systems.

Now fully occupied these units provide excellent example of how to build housing with Light Gauge Steel Frame using the Offsite full panel system.

Frameclad manufactured all of the internal/external frames for these two interlinked block five-storey residential development. Floors were constructed from lattice joists and also balcony cassettes were supplied to sit inside a hot rolled frame. Access was limited and due to the busy site location deliveries had to be carefully coordinated and time slots hit.
