14 private duplex appartments
We are now in the process of carrying out the detailed superstructure design of 14 private duplex appartments in southeast London on behalf of our client, OFP.
The appartments, architecturally designed by The Crawford Partnership, are part five and four storey with underground parking and are constructed on a former petrol filling station site in Lewisham.
The structure employs the latest timber framing techniques utilising Finnforest’s engineered timber Finnjoist to form both the wall panelsand the separating floors. Finnjoist’s, which are produced with a low and uniform moisture content virtually eradicate shrinkage and thus provide a stable structure allowing the architects to specify a part rendered exterior finish. Incorporating Finnjoist’s for the separating floors as continuously spanning joists assists with complying with current Building Regulation Disproportionate Collapse prevention requirements.
