These show homes by Crest were built using the Rå Build method of construction, ensuring a quicker than usual build time.

Crest Nicholson needed a fast build method to erect the three show homes and the first phase of the Silk Meadows development quickly and efficiently. H+H’s Rå Build method of thin joint aircrete construction provided the housebuilder with the ideal solution.

To help speed construction still further, retro-fit joist hangers were used to support the timber joists for the intermediate floors, this method eliminates block cutting at joist level, further increasing build speed and helping to improve airtightness performance.  This, in turn, enables the contractor to order the staircases in advance of the floor’s construction, rather than having to wait until the floor has been installed before taking measurements.

The Rå Build method enabled Crest Nicholson to complete construction of the show homes, which included a three-storey house in just 12 weeks.
