Metsec SFS framing and render work on a new school in Rugby

This is a new school being built on the edges of Rugby within the Houlton development. Houlton is a large residential development which is being constructed over the next 5 years. The site is where the iconic M1 Radio Masts were, since 1926. The first transatlantic phone call was sent from this site to the USA in 1927.

Stepnell employed Weatherseal to supply and install the Metsec sfs and the works were a challenge that kept us busy. There was not a single panel or area that was repeated with a wide range of steel sections (both thicknesses and sections) used on the project. Our works package increased during the works so that we installed steel angles, supports, sheathing boards, insulation, roof edges, fire barriers, airtight membranes and assisted Stepnell to install and undertake works to co-ordinate the various trades. The finished scheme will provide a landmark building on the new development with the school (St Gabriels) scheduled to open In September 2017.
