Cambridge Roof Truss rise to the Challenge for Redrow Homes

Cambridge Roof Truss, designers and manufacturers of timber engineering products for the construction sector, are pleased to be working in conjunction with national house builders Redrow Homes on their new developments in Hauxton, a historic village just five miles from the University  City of Cambridge.


The site consists of Sanderson Manor, an exclusive development of 3, 4 & 5 bedroom houses, and Cobden Gardens which offers a selection of 2 & 3 bedroom homes. The house designs are taken from Redrow Homes award winning Heritage collection, which combines the very best of traditional architecture and craftsmanship, with stylish interiors designed around the way we live today.
The development when finished will provide 201 new houses, with many of the designs incorporating vaulted ceilings, which help reflect the traditional feel, therefore taking advantage of integrating raised tie trusses into the roof design. In addition, Cambridge Roof Truss also manufactured Spandrel panels for this development, which were designed in conjunction with the roof trusses and adhere to Robust Details. The spandrel panels which are used to replace the party wall blockwork in the roof space, and the gable panels which replace blockwork at the gable ends of the property are clad with ply or plasterboard to increase both acoustic and fire rated properties. These panels are specifically produced pre-assembled and delivered with factory fitted slings, thereby ensuring easy unloading and safe and rapid installation on site.

Jack McMinn, Managing Director of Cambridge Roof Truss commented, “We were invited to tender for Redrow’s roof truss business at the end of 2014, and we are now proud to be working with four divisions within the Redrow Group. When we started trading a mere 12 months ago, we structured our entire business on providing a unique level of service within the timber engineering industry with a view to building long term relationships with all of our customers. It has therefore been particularly satisfying to have this recognised by Redrow Homes Supplier Performance Review, where we have been awarded the highest achieving truss manufacturer”.
