Nomad Homes built with engineered timber solutions
A range of sustainable timber products has been supplied and installed in the construction of 13 new social housing bungalows in North Shields.
Built by main contractor Surgo Construction, the homes were specified with soffits and fascia boards, insulated structural spandrel wall panels and engineered timber joists supplied and installed by leading specialists Howarth Timber Engineering.
A very demanding timeframe of 28 weeks to clear the site and construct the new homes placed pressure on all suppliers to the project, and Howarth Timber Engineered Solutions rose to the challenge by condensing its lead time by four weeks in order to help Surgo Construction meet its obligations.
Access and egress to site presented further challenges but, through careful management and coordination throughout the construction process, the project was completed successfully and ahead of schedule.
Commissioned by Nomad Housing Group, total build costs for the project was £1.13m and the homes are now occupied.
