Home sweet home
A housing scheme supported by U-Roof systems for a development in the North of England
Home sweet home
A housing scheme U-Roof have been involved with just outside Todmorden in West Yorkshire.
The overall project comprises of 21 semi-detached 3 storey town houses.
Our 100mm wide wall panels were utilised for all load bearing walls, 225mm floors cassettes with services holes were designed.
A powerful result
The existing building & the current space within wasn’t able to cater for the company’s future expansion plans.
The void above the ceiling level was interrupted by a series of steel fink trusses which made space unusable.
The brief was to create office space to a new first-floor level, with the remaining part having double-height space to facilitate storage of materials.
The principle contractor stripped back the existing roof & prepared the substructure ready for our arrival.
Raised eaves and gable panels were used to the perimeter walls to lift the roofline. This saved time on site & eliminated the need for wet trades to build up to the required wall level.
The finishing touch
Purchased on a supply only basis this roof system was installed by a husband and wife team.
The brief was to design a pitched roof with a 40° pitch to support 85kg/m² roof tiles.
The building spanned circa 5.5m eaves to eaves & 10.4m gable to gable.
Our 165mm steel joists members were used complete with service holes spanning across the width of the building, in conjunction with our 100mm panelised rafter members to provide the primary structure.
A housing scheme in a restricted cul-de-sac location where access was tight and limited.
Due to site constraints the U-Roof frame had to be designed so it could be handled easily and lifted into position without the use of a crane
The design of the building had cantilevered elements, and the building fabric consisted of insulated through colour render and cedar rainscreen cladding systems.
