The Brief

The design was very technical and detailed, and we used two teams: one for the roof and one for the cladding, which was made from larch and wrapped around the front balcony and the top storey of the town houses. We worked on the design of the roof joists, which we then had manufactured by a trusted supplier. We also had to ensure that the cladding met stringent fire-safety standards.

The Approach

We installed roof joists, internal staircases and joists, and some external cladding on this mixture of 60+ town houses and two-storey houses in Aylesbury, working for Wates. The homes were constructed in terraces of eight units and the project was a mixture of social and private housing.
