Two-bedroom detached domestic residence
Job Description: Steel Structure, External Envelope
Gross Development Value: £70,000
Contract Length: 4 months
Contractor Type: Specialist Sub
This two-bedroomed house in Chelmsford is one of the first houses in the UK to be built using the HadFrame system. The structure consisits of mainly cold-rolled light guage steel, with some hot rolled supports built in for stability. The panels for the house arrived with the structural openings already built in, saving time on site as no cutting was required. Service holes were also already punched into the frames to allow other trades to run cables/pipes etc with ease.
Once the frame of the house was complete, the external walls of the entire structure were boarded with Cement Particle board. Te joints were taped to aid the insulation of the property.
A polystyrene exterior was then applied to the exterior of the house, before brick slips were added to finish the overall look of the house.
Internally, the walls were covered with fireline plasterboard, with the frames being filled with Rockwool insulation to achieve U values as low as 0.14.
