The office has a steel load bearing frame with a secondary timber frame to support the sheathing board, insulation and interior plasterboard. Diminishing valley frames were needed for the valleys between the main roof and the trussed entrance portal. The roof cladding on the valleys has been specially profiled to accept 120mm of insulation that is required on the entire roof.
The office has an attractive brick skin. As this part of the building covers almost the whole length of the factory facing the site entrance, the design ensures an attractive kerbside view.
With work on target to finish fitting out early in the new year, we are looking forward to moving. Our new building will enable us to increase capacity in a modern factory with excellent transport links to the A14, A140, A12 and major routes into East and West Suffolk.
