Thinking 'Outside the Box' at Scotts Place

We have recently undertaken our largest single project to date on behalf of Persimmon Homes South East, which provided a challenging array of issues to resolve, including design requirements and restricted on site delivery.

Scotts Place is a fantastic collection of one, two and three bedroom apartments. Situated in the affluent suburb of Bromley in Kent, it is the ideal location for first time buyers, professionals and those looking to downsize. 

Our team worked closely with the Persimmon Technical Team and Space4 in order to ensure that the unusual Mansard 81 degree roof pitch would be feasible.  We achieved this by positioning the trusses in such a way as to spread the upload and tie the roof back. With Space4 providing the made structure, we then proceeded to produce the timber frame spandrel panels for the roof area. The external walls of the terraced area were formed with trusses and finished off with Firrings, which we supplied and delivered pre-cut to site. The trusses were designed to have the lower sections removed to allow for all of the structural openings which made for easier on-site construction.

Another obstacle to overcome was the logistics of delivery to site.  The development is situated in a busy residential road, with cars parked both sides. Therefore we implemented a plan to take small deliveries on rigid vehicles, and then remove off the lorry with a crane, straight up onto the roof.

This was a challenging project, but one that resulted in a great partnership effort by all those involved.
