Uddingston apartment build showcases off-site manufacture
May 23 2017
Taking the form of two three storey blocks the scheme provides 12 amenity flats for older residents on behalf of South Lanarkshire Council and makes use of CCG’s OSM closed panel system which arrives direct from the factory with pre-installed insulation, windows, doors and services.
Utilising a timber construction system the build was given a traditional appearance by the use of lightweight clip on ‘brick slips’ to remove the need for labour intensive bricklaying.
CCG OSM Managing Director, Steven Earlie, remarked: “Our closed panel timber system has excellent environmental properties and brings enhanced efficiency on and off-site but with the added advantage of the ‘acrylic brick slips’ cladding solution, we are able to challenge traditional construction practices head on with a product that looks and performs just as well, if not better, than the original.”
The homes were designed and built by South Lanarkshire Council’s in-house property service team.
