Shire Timber extra care facility Long Eaton project

Shire Timber completed the design, supply and installation of this large Extra Care Facility in Long Eaton, which comprised of trussed rafters and associated items, spandrel panels, glulam rafters and columns, and uPVC fascia and soffits.

The design and manufacture was undertaken inhouse and co-ordinated on site by Shire Timber’s experienced Contracts Manager with one of its top installation teams, completing the installation on time with Shire Timber picking up Sub-Contractor of the Month award.

Due to the height of the trusses and the logistical complications of the glulam columns, Shire used its vast experience in the supply and erection market to safely erect the trusses; and produced Risk Assessments and Method Statements for the safe erection of this challenging timber roof structure along with Designer’s Risk Assessments in accordance with Shire Timber’s CDM policy.
