Customer: Pocket Living
Value: £9.1 million
Started: March 2022
Due to Complete: Autumn 2023
Overview: Development of 48 new homes using offsite manufactured LGS Frame.
MMC Category: 2
The project comprises the construction of 48 new homes utilising MMC Category 2 offsite manufactured light guage steel frame panelised system.
Under a JCT D&B contract we worked collaboratively with Pocket Living and the frame manufacturer Intrastack to find a solution for the scheme. The site is situated within an old carpark, flanked by a fully occupied residential properties and an old quarry. Utilising the offsite system meant not only were we able to reduce the impact on the local community, we also were able to enhance the sustainability of the development through less deliveries, less concrete and less waste!
Once complete, the chosen system will also provide the finished building with an improved U-value of 0.14W/m2K (based on initial design proposals), as well as significantly improved acoustics.
The footage from our time lapse camera shows the speed at which the frame was completed in just 12 weeks with only one or two days lost due to high winds preventing crane lifts.
Claritas is able to provide offsite solution appraisals for all projects.
