Williams Homes used H+H Jumbo Bloks and H+H Celcon Blocks with Thin Joint Celfix mortar to build Craven Gardens, an exclusive development of eight detached four and five bedroom homes located in the historic market town of Melton Mowbray.

The homes are designed to combine modern materials with energy efficient, low maintenance construction.

H+H 100mm aircrete Jumbo Bloks make up the inner leaf of external cavity walls, joined with Thin Joint Celfix mortar. Walls include a 100mm fully filled cavity using DriTherm semi-rigid cavity slabs with a traditional facing brick outer skin.

The same blocks were also used for internal partition walls, dry lined with a plaster skim on the ground floor and timber stud partitioning on the upper floors. H+H Celcon Blocks were used as a lightweight, thermally efficient infill on the beam and block floor.

Williams Homes is a family run company with a reputation for building quality homes which benefit from modern day materials and construction techniques while retaining traditional styles and values.

The high quality, accurately dimensioned Jumbo Bloks and Thin Joint Celfix mortar are simple to work with. As a result, the system enabled the structure to be built extremely quickly, to a very high quality, which allowed follow-on trades to start work sooner in a weatherproof environment.

Using Thin Joint Celfix mortar also helped reduce construction waste to make the site easier to manage.

“We’ve used H+H aircrete blocks and Thin Joint system for the last 10 years, sticking with it because it’s such a good system for speed and ease of construction with minimal waste,” says Steve Williams, a director of house-builder Williams Homes.
