The Horizon Offsite team recently completed a residential development at New Meridian Village, Manston Road, Ramsgate in Kent for Ferndale Contractors Limited, with Dublin-based architects Sada.

Horizon Offsite previously completed homes in this development through phase 1 and phase 2, starting in 2018. Phase 1 consisted of 22 residential apartments and took just 10 weeks onsite to complete. The second phase had a more intricate design, consisting of 42, two and three-storey housing units spanning over 80,000 square foot. Both concrete floors and light gauge floors were incorporated into this design. Like all our projects all walls and floors were performed offsite in our facility and transported on site ready for installation.

The project was designed to achieve NHBC and SCI compliance and Horizon Offsite’s unique accredited thermal bridge detail ensured that the project could be completed using 80 mm Xtratherm Xtroliner insulation in the cavity, this was pre-fitted to the light gauge steel frames by the Horizon team in our facility in Cahir, County Tipperary prior to transport and installation on site in the UK. Also, the unique solution offered by Horizon Offsite includes a site-specific detail for supporting balconies.
