Great to see the first floor and roof structure in place on this challenging build.
We are delighted to be working with Warwick Business School who are expanding their existing education facilities with offices, meeting rooms and a large lecture theatre on level 13.
Just the finishing touches to external works and planting to go in....
With the scaffold down the contrasting textures of the courtyard are revealed.
Low level glazing provides a glimpse of the street below from the new office loft space at The Old Bank.
A complex steel roof structure is placed on the ground floor masonry at Market Square.
Handmade bricks laid in traditional garden bond have been expertly laid to face up the concrete retaining walls of the sunken garden at Southmoor Road.
Wooldridge & Simpson managed a multitude of trades in effective simultaneous working to accelerate progress.
A beam and block floor structure was installed in less then four hours to provide a first-floor structure with excellent acoustic and thermal mass properties. The speed of installation allowed the first floor masonry to proceed ahead of schedule.
Dense below-slab insulation was used to achieve Passivhaus thermal performance whilst maximising the beneficial thermal mass of the concrete. The original cottage had good foundations but the original floor slab needed to be replaced. A continuous slab was poured through the entire ground floor unifying the old and new parts of the project.
