Barratt Homes had been closely involved in the development of the Ultrapanel system and are now rolling it out on live sites such as Bowland Meadow.
The Ultrapanel 'room in the roof' and spandrel wall solution was used on the Kingsville house type – a three-storey terraced home.
- Fully Accredited - The Ultrapanel 'room in the roof' system is BBA and NHBC accredited for total peace of mind and future proofed to meet new legislation requirements.
- Total Design Flexibility - The Ultrapanel system allows for windows (and staircases) to be placed virtually anywhere in a house design, which floods the space with huge amounts of natural light. On this house the Ultrapanel roof was able to replicate the existing design without any changes. Although in the future to take full advantage of the system, the design could include a valuted ceiling for example.
- Rapid Installation - On this build, each plot was watertight within a day, saving a huge amount of time compared to a traditional roof build. No crane is needed, thanks to its lightweight nature which eliminates the complexities of having a crane on site, along with reducing H&S risks due to heavy lifting at height.
- Site friendly - Thanks to an established, reliable and responsive supply chain, each Kingsville roof was delivered to site in kit form within 2 weeks of call-off, meaning no delays on site, and an acceleration of the build schedule.
