A recently constructed residential property in Highgate, North London designed by J-J Lorraine was modified with the addition of an extra storey of lightweight, pre-fabricated construction. A single storey side extension at ground level was also added.
Lightweight timber panels were
pre-fabricated off- site and lifted into position by mobile crane. Project site
time was limited to two days.
Existing structure was checked for the proposed loads with minimal extra structure required. Due to the nature of pre-fabrication and installation the client experienced minimal disruption and could use almost the whole building during installation.
