The H+H Rå build method of construction with a solid wall approach saved time and money for developer Chacombe Park Developments LTD at Badby Park Nursing Home, Daventry. Just 20 weeks were taken for completion of the aircrete inner shell, with Minett Group carrying out all the aircrete work. This enabled there to be no compromise on quality, with consistent and predictable performance characteristics that met the specification requirements.
Bob Lari, Director, Chacombe Park Developments LTD said, ““we were very happy with how Minett Group completed their work almost 5 weeks ahead of schedule when compared with traditional methods. We also know that using the Rå Build method of construction will mean a building meets or exceeds Building Regulations for sound and thermal insulation.”
Bob said, “with a 60,000 sq foot building such as this, being able to get the shell watertight quickly enabled follow on trades to start work earlier than if we used other techniques. We are now using the Rå Build method of construction on our next construction project.”
Complete Rendering Solutions of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire applied the external finish. Contracts Director, Brian Smyth said, “aircrete structures are ideal for applying insulated render to. A constant flat surface means we were able to get the insulated render on quickly. Despite the size of the development it only took 6 weeks to complete our work. We would happily work on an aircrete shell again.” Badby Park is a unique facility dedicated to neurological iIllnesses and disorders, providing specialist nursing and rehabilitation in the vicinity of Northampton.
