RåBuild Celcon Blocks and Thin-Joint system
Hill Bespoke, which uses cutting edge techniques to provide premium housing solutions. specified the RåBuild method of construction, which uses the H+H Thin-Joint System, on four new build homes in Cambridgeshire.
RåBuild, an all-in-one approach to building from H+H UK, takes full advantages of the properties of aircrete to allow for the quick construction of high quality homes.
BIM technology was used to create models for the RåBuild house which were accurate to the original barns on site, and the RåBuild units.
The benefits of aircrete are multiplied in larger construction projects, where labour costs make up a greater proportion of the overall expenditure. The increased speed of construction achieved by using aircrete reduces the amount of labour required, either lowering the number of labourers needed to complete a project, or by reducing the amount of time needed to complete the masonry shell using traditional materials.
By using the Thin-Joint System and its proprietary Celfix mortar, RåBuild House is able to deliver a weathertight shell within days. This has cost-saving implications for the entire construction project, as delays caused by inclement weather, which occur frequently in the UK, are mitigated.
A combination of weathertightness and the naturally fast building speed available to users of aircrete and the Thin-Joint System, meant that the work site in Cambridgeshire was promptly turned over to follow-on tradesman, saving resources on labour costs, as well as allowing the cottages to become available for occupation sooner.
“For a number of years, I have been familiar with H+H products, particularly the Thin-Joint System, and I have always found them to be capable of producing high quality homes and properties, efficiently and effectively,”
“By using H+H, we were able to ensure that the building programme was protected from unexpected delays due to poor weather and that the project remained on time.” “The Anstey Hall Barns development has a stunning pedigree. Laying between Grantchester and Trumpington, we set about creating stunning homes that complimented the heritage and aesthetic appeal of the original barns, whilst providing the modern amenities and comfort that a contemporary family has come to expect.” Mike Beckett - Managing Director - Hill Bespoke Ltd.
The versatility of H+H aircrete resulted in the four properties being completed on time and within budget to create a series of stunning homes in the Cambridgeshire countryside.
