A considerable amount of planning was required prior to the manufacture of this building. The Building is set in a stunning rural location and it was therefore key that it sat well in the surrounding area despite the fact that it is 100 sq/m and situated on a slope. The use of Feather Edge Cladding and a green steel roof helped it to fit naturally into its surroundings.i
The building has steel trusses to give a sense of space and an airy feel, we are increasingly utilising steel trusses in our building more and more on any building with over a 3.5 metre span as they provide and incredible strong yet cost effective and aesthetically pleasing solution.
The building has a large veranda which makes a lovely place to stand and take in the wonderful views, but from a practical aspect it also works to shade the windows and doors in the summer to stop the building over-heating.
The building is fully insulated and double glazed to keep it warm in winter and cool in the summer.
The building is set on one of our “sub-frames” which consists of 150mm x 50mm tantalised C24 timber frame work with 100mm x 100mm posts sitting on 450mm x 450mm concrete slabs.
