LIGHTWEIGHT BUILDINGS


Our modular lightweight buildings provide a warm, sustainable alternative to a traditional brick-built conservatory base or wall. They match brick-built buildings for cost and longevity, but are much quicker to install. And because they are made from the most modern materials, they are built to last.

Modular Conservatory Walls & Base

Supporting your property development projects.

Typically installed on concrete pads, our solution saves time, mess and stress when considering a structural addition to your house. Conservatories, extensions and orangeries built with our lightweight materials are installed in a matter of days, rather than weeks! And, our system has no thermal bridging or moisture absorption due to its GRP lightweight and structurally sound framework. It is thermally efficient to building regulation standards.

The cladding comes in a range of colours and textures. It offers a sustainable and realistic replication of either real brick work, stone or timber. We can even supply external boarding, immediately ready for a plasterer to render directly to.

Our lightweight buildings are made with highly engineered, prefabricated modular sections that are factory tested prior to delivery. This quick and lightweight building solution has revolutionised the building industry and has provided homeowners with multiple options and benefits.

  • High Thermal efficiency

Step 1: Adjustable feet

Subject to ground conditions on where the light weight building is to be located, typically the supporting feet can be installed upon basic concrete pads. This saves on extensive ground work having to be carried out in most cases.

With adjustable capability the lightweight building feet can cater for varied floor levels, ensuring an accurate/level finish when completed.

Step 2: Base System Installation

Once a sufficient membrane is laid to the covered ground area, the , lightweight solution ‘pre-manufactured’ GRP base system is installed. This includes a floor perimeter beam as well as structurally advanced supporting joists that are complemented thermally with the use of PIR insulation sheets installed in-between them.

Step 3: Modular Wall System

The benefits of the wall system is its ability to be truly modular. Each and every wall can be requested at bespoke heights and widths to suit your desired living requirement. All pre-manufactured into simple lightweight sections for ease of installation.

Step 4: Roof Installation

Once the modular system framework has been installed it is usual for an appropriate roof system to be installed.

Step 5: Insulation

High grade EPS insulation is pre-cut to size and installed neatly between the thermally efficient GRP frame work.

Step 6: Plasterboards & Flooring

Following any window/door installation, the internal energy efficient plasterboards are installed, along with high-grade weightrock flooring. This provides a finish ready for both plastering and preferred floor covering to be applied.

Step 7: External Finish

Finally the desired external finish is applied. The modular system is very diversified, offering a choice of:

  • GRP brick/timber or even stone skin finishes – all quick to install and maintenance free
  • or the unique external Leka board that allows a plasterer to apply a wet render coat directly too.

Customers can also apply their own finish if requested.

Fast Installation

In most circumstances the modular system (including any roof system) can be installed and completed in less than a week. No more heavy ground works, mess and weeks of build time.
