Developer Canning Ericsson used H+H’s Thin-Joint System of large format aircrete blocks and quick-drying Celfix Mortar to construct a three-storey apartment block with solid concrete floors to current Building Regulations on a confined site in Brighton.
H+H products were selected for this project due to the aircrete’s high thermal performance which helps meet Passivhaus standards. Passivhaus is achieved by the application of high levels of insulation, avoidance of thermal bridging within the structure, low levels of air leakage all of which are qualities addressed with the use of the H+H range of Celcon Blocks.
Having used H+H’s Thin-Joint System for more than 10 years, Sherborne Homes again opted for this effective build system when working on their very first housing association project. The Thin-Joint System provides the Sherborne Homes contractors with a hassle free building solution and a great support package that allows for fast and effective construction. It is the tendency of Sherborne Homes to steer away from using timber frame and H+H products offer the perfect solution.
Contractor Robert Bishop from RT Bishop, required a swift construction solution as a replacement for timber frame that his team could successfully use to deliver the project on time. H+H’s Rå Build method, using the Thin-Joint System and a combination of H+H Jumbo Bloks and Celcon Foundation Blocks provided the perfect solution.
A private one-off custom-build residential home built for a family of four who had lived in Bourne End since 1985. They wanted to buy a new house in the area, having extended their existing bungalow three times, but could find nowhere suitable. This led them to look at custom building a new home on the existing bungalow’s plot.
