PROJECT
OVERVIEW

The client requirements were to design and construct a timber frame system to satisfy previous planning approval for a bespoke, high quality dwelling in a prominent location behind Whiteladies Road, Clifton, Bristol. Being in a logistically challenging location brief was to utilize an off-site manufactured solution to install a timber frame superstructure quickly to minimize the construction program and the impact on the surrounding community. The timber frame superstructure was manufactured in 4 weeks with site installation being completed in only 1 week by BM developments. Internal fit out was then completed in 10weeks.

BUILD
SEQUENCING

The building had previously been designed as an in situ poured concrete frame, however, this was redesigned to a complete timber structure using entirely FSC supplied products. The main components were primarily constructed as a ‘flat pack’ kit of parts and erected in a five day period on site. Modular components were delivered on a short bed rigid delivery vehicle and installed by a 20t mobile crane during which time health & safety and traffic management were carried out to high standard. Within 10 working days the superstructure was water tight and internal fit-out could commence.
