Teaming up with Shanly Homes for Luxury Apartments Development

We are pleased to recently be appointed by Shanly Homes to assist with their Elder Place development in Bushey, Hertfordshire. Since the development of their first home in 1969, Shanly Homes have remained committed to developing high-specification, sustainable, architecturally innovative homes, designed to complement the local environment and improve the quality of life for those who live there.

Elder Place offers 12 contemporary luxury two bedroom apartments, which offer either a balcony or terrace outside space, as well as secure basement car parking and beautiful communal gardens.

We worked in conjunction with Gravity Consulting Engineers to design out the majority of the steel framework were possible within the roof space. The roof consists of many ‘staged’ areas including a large central flat roof constructed with Posi-Joists topped with Firrings within a perimeter ring of truss, with most of the roof then being set out from this ‘staging’. There was a large amount of flat topped trusses in varying sizes, but due to the minimal set up times, these proved ideal for manufacture on our Stavelse press. In addition, bespoke prefabricated ladders with inter-noggins were designed, with the flat roof joists designed to take the PV panel loading.

On-site, the trusses were off loaded in order of construction, which then assisted with a smooth transition to the next build stages.
