we love what we do
White Haus work on a variety of Timber Frame projects from one off builds to multi-use development sites. This includes hybrid projects combining factory insulated timber frame and steel.
A Pair of Semi-Detached Dwellings in Hersham
This project was for one of our self build clients. The build involved the demolition of an existing bungalow to make way for a pair of semi-detached houses.
The timber frame structure took under 4 weeks to complete including installation of metal web joists at first and second floor level with a hand cut roof. We installed vapour control and service batten to allow services to be easily run through the external walls.
This was a demanding project with little room for plant, a crane was positioned in the rear garden of the property.
12 New Flats On Top of an Existing Block in Tottenham
The original construction had 3 storeys and a mansard roof, the existing roof was removed to allow for one new storey (comprising of 6 flats) to be installed with a new mansard roof (also comprising of 6 flats) to be constructed on top.
The build was formed by a steel frame and in-filled with factory insulated timber frame panels. We installed a new floor construction above the existing 2nd floor which was weathered to prevent the ingress of surface water into the flats. Metal web joists were installed to form the floors, this was topped with OSB to allow an under floor heating system to be installed before our acoustic flooring system was laid on top.
The complete new structure was overboard with an extra 100mm of site installed poly-urethane insulation to get the u-value down to 0.10 w/m2k. This was then sprayed with our Passive-Purple liquid membrane to ensure a brilliant air tightness score.
Lower Marsh Lane
Multi-use Development in Kingston
This project is a multi-use development site for one of our commercial clients. The project consisted of a steel frame Co-op supermarket with 12 new flats above and 27 semi-detached houses all built from timber frame. The project was split over four phases and took approximately 12 months to complete.
The Co-op was a steel frame at ground floor level with an I-joist separating floor to the flats. The flats above were constructed from factory insulated timber frame panels with a brick outer skin. A mansard roof was utilised for the top floor to allow another floor of accommodation to be installed in the roof.
The houses are all three storey town houses using timber frame, metal web joists and hand cut roofs to give the extra space needed for rooms in the roof. All walls were constructed to help achieve a 0.14 w/m2k u-value.
Student Accommodation in Birmingham
This project is a four storey block of studio flats for one of our commercial clients. There are 12 studios on each floor which include their own kitchen/bathroom/living space. The bathrooms are pods are pre-finished off-site and craned into position during the construction phase.
This project was also finished with our acoustic flooring system to ensure that the project complies with robust details meaning a sound test is not required on completion of the job.
The flat roof was put to falls by White Haus using firing strips which then had a single ply membrane installed to weather the building.
