Metsec SFS framing on a new school in Solihull

We were involved in pricing the sfs and cladding works and negotiated the package with the Main Contractor Montage Construction.

The project is to install additional classrooms at first floor level built over an existing building which remained open and operational throughout the contract.

The large frame is self supporting and includes gable walls and large roof spans with sfs components of over 10m span. There is no  hot rolled steel or other components so the entire 1st floor is built using Metsec sfs. The works were installed progressively and by careful co-ordination and more than a little effort the frame and sheathing including plywood onto roof areas were completed within 2 weeks to provide a weatherproof shell for the Main Contractor to progress his works.

Weatherseal advised the design team on the render works and after careful consideration the specification was changed to provide a more cost effective and non combustible mineral wool system utilised.
