Creagh’s Spantherm harnesses offsite production to reduce the time to install a fully insulated floor from weeks to days
Creagh’s Spantherm thermally efficient flooring is being utilised at a housing development in Warmington, Peterborough, in England. The 11 new homes development is being built by NRI Civils and will be ready by the end of 2019.
NRI Civils chose Spantherm insulated precast concrete flooring system as it is designed specifically for use at ground floor level in residential and small to medium-sized commercial projects. They opted for the work to be completed by Creagh’s expert fitting team, requiring no labour from them and saving them time on site.
Adam Moody, contracts manager for NRI Civils, stated: “We chose Spantherm because one of the things that we are looking for as a business is to improve efficiencies, reduce costs, reduce labour and time on site and when you’ve got a difficult site, where you’re struggling for storage, that’s exactly where Spantherm is perfect.”
Spantherm is installed in just minutes, not days. By producing high performance insulated concrete units offsite, we have redefined the speed of installing a fully insulated floor. This is the next generation of structural flooring systems designed as the efficient alternative to labour-intensive beam and block installations.
Housebuilders increasingly explore the opportunities for new ideas to reduce labour onsite and boost efficiency in the build it makes sense that they start with the ground floor. The initial appeal of Spantherm is clear, as a typical floor on a detached house or a pair of semis is fitted onsite in less than two hours.
Once in place and grouted, the floor achieves its full structural capability within 72 hours but building activity can commence on perimeter walls within 24 hours.
Adam said: “The team have been absolutely fantastic with the support we get, anything that we need to discuss with them, they are always on hand, so we have a great relationship. We will definitely be using Spantherm again to help our optimum goal of achieving better efficiency and reducing costs and labour times.”
