Creagh’s Spantherm thermally efficient flooring is being utilised at a housing development in North Muskham, Nottinghamshire in England. The new 16 homes development is being built by Geda Construction and will be ready by the end of 2019.
Geda Construction choose Spantherm insulated precast concrete flooring system as it is designed specifically for use at ground floor level in residential and small-medium sized commercial projects. They opted for the work to be completed by Creagh’s expert fitting team, requiring no labour from them and saving them time on site.
“Geda used Spantherm to push the project along as its one operation that just makes it so much quicker & easier to facilitate on site. We are impressed on the installation of the slabs and the time that it saves us on site” said Shaun Wormall, Site Manager for Geda.
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.
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.
Shaun states “From a site management point of view its been really good, Creagh have been very responsive and the production timescales and installation has been quick and painless. We would definitely use Spantherm again, brilliant product, well managed, well run, good".
