British Offsite Secures £1Million Contract to Build Residential Development Using LSF

Braintree-based offsite construction specialist British Offsite has secured a £1million contract to build a 91-unit residential project in Dagenham.

The Church Elm Lane project, for developers Major Housing Association, involves the installation of 347 UNisystemSFS infill panels across eight floors within the reinforced concrete frame. This features 100mm studs pre-installed with head shutters, windows and doors tailored to Major Housing Association's specifications.

The panels also include internal and external insulation and brick tie channels. The use of prefabricated panels is expected to accelerate the construction programme by approximately 30 per cent.

Managing director of British Offsite, Shaun Weston, said using offsite construction on the project would help speed up development an provide high-quality housing.

He said: "Working with Major Housing Association on the Church Elm Lane project is another step forward in our mission to deliver high-quality, sustainable, and affordable housing.

"By utilising our innovative UNisystem, we are not only accelerating the construction timeline but also ensuring that these new homes meet the highest standards of energy efficiency and environmental responsibility, also ensuring excellent thermal, acoustic, and fire protection.

"Thank you to everyone involved for securing this project."
