Bridgewater Somerset Project
Work begins on an exciting project up near Bridgewater, Somerset .
BWF are constructing 5 blocks that consist of two dormitory pods and a bathroom pod set in a fabulous but challenging rural location in the Quantock Hills.
The client / business received grant funding for this project and we have worked closely with the clients to create the right structure for this location and meet the brief of a rustic but functional, modern construction, offering a feeling of up-graded camping !
Detailed design has enabled all the components of the project to be constructed off site ready to send to site for erection – this will speed up the on site schedule and ensure controlled fabrication of frames which are then delivered as kits. Built with insulated timber frame walls and a SIPS roof, the buildings will sit on heavy duty galvanised Screw Piles – these are all installed prior to the build and cause minimal disruption to the site … all locations for these and screw depths are pre calculated with engineering details followed. They have proved a great base for this location with its banked terraced plot .
The buildings will feature a timber cladding finish to the exterior on the front and side elevations, rustic shutters , double glazed windows , EPDM roofing , wavy cement board to the rear elevations, plus a fabulous curved roof detail across the central pods . Internally it will be timber clad. The BWF team will be on site for the duration of the build with carefully planned logistical support from the unit here in Bissoe.
