Major regeneration project chooses Spantherm

Creagh’s Spantherm thermally efficient flooring is being utilised at a £17m housing development in Glasgow.  The new development will be made up of 143 homes.  It’s the second phase of the Gallowgate new-build programme, after 62 homes were built by Glasgow Housing Association (GHA) in 2013.  The new homes should be ready by early 2020.  

Spantherm is an insulated precast concrete flooring system designed specifically for use at ground floor level in residential and small-medium sized commercial projects.  The composite slab combines structural grade reinforced concrete and high performance expanded polystyrene insulation to provide a thermally efficient structural floor.

Spantherm is installed in just minutes, not days. By producing high performance insulated concrete units off-site we have redefined the speed of installing a fully insulated floor.  This is the next generation of structural flooring systems designed as the efficient alternative to labour intensive beam and block installations.

Housebuilders increasingly explore the opportunities for new ideas to reduce labour onsite and boost efficiency in the build it makes sense that they start with the ground floor. The initial appeal of Spantherm is clear, as a typical floor on a detached house or a pair of semis is fitted onsite in less than two hours.

GHA opted for the work to be completed by Creagh’s expert fitting team, requiring no labour from them.  Once in place and grouted, the floor achieves its full structural capability within 72 hours but building activity can commence on perimeter walls within 24 hours.
