The system used sees the walls and floors built as panels and cassettes respectively and craned into place. The floors have a type of beam construction that means services can be simply thread through and the walls are ready battened to allow services and the plasterboard. Externally a skin of blocks, bricks, a render or other finishes can be applied (including dry approaches). Looking forward to working with them further – maybe one day getting something designed instead of off the shelf. I may return to this subject (frames) in future blogs.
The evening was capped off with a trip to St Ives, inspired by BBC4’s excellent documentary on the Art of Cornwall – here if you missed it. Inspiring for both its eclectic architecture and its art and provided an interesting end to a design led day. Oh and a few goes on video games – I can’t help myself at times!
