This fantastic project had a strong focus on sustainability and natural materials. We worked with the architect to produce a scheme which re-used as much of the existing structure and foundations as possible, which was a delicate operation considering the alterations that had been made to the structure in the past. The use of Revit and carefully specifed investigation works really helped the team pull this project together.
The final scheme utilised lightweight timber structure throughout – traditional studwork for the gym extension, and a feature glulam load bearing stability frame for the new two-storey master bedroom and lounge. Through careful coordination we were able to develop a scheme which suitably exposed the structure, and met the requirements for insulation without excessive additional build-up.
