We’ve been working with high end building contractor Norfolk Homes for many years. They started in 1985 and in that time have built over 3000 new homes across the County of Norfolk. One of their latest projects is a development of new houses that has been greatly influenced by modern and innovative European and Scandinavian architecture.
Located less than 3 miles from Norwich at Manor’s Reach, Sprowston, the small town, with a population of around 14,000, already has Scandinavian connections in the fact that the town takes its name from the Scandinavian personal name ‘Sprow’ and ‘ton’ meaning village.
Even though the village became a Town in 2011 it still retains its old-world charm. It is against this background that we have worked closely with the client to supply a range of lightweight products that not only enhances the new homes but reflects the heritage and rural nature of the area.
These include lightweight chimneys, dormers and door canopies in addition to our unique Stone-Coat string course and copings. It was important, for the client, that all products supplied reflected the high standard of finish. For example, the executive homes feature large floor to ceiling windows, spacious vaulted rooms, open plan layouts and balconies.
As a long standing client, we are delighted to continue providing a range of products that can be uniquely moulded to suit the client’s exacting specifications. One of the key reasons Norfolk Homes chose Build-Lite products was for their cost effectiveness, speed of installation and importantly their energy efficiency.
Every home in the development, from one bedroom apartments to the large executive homes are designed to reduce energy bills and the resident’s carbon footprint. This includes luxurious – but energy efficient – underfloor heating to the ground floor.
By using Build Lite products, not only does Norfolk Homes save valuable construction time, as all products are manufactured off site and supplied on a ‘just in time’ basis but as the raw material used (EPS) retains 80% of its thermal value the energy efficiency of the finished product ensures a low carbon footprint.
