Wolf Systems pivotal to apartment development success


The construction of a luxury residential development on the Welsh coast, built by specialist timber frame manufacturer, Firwood Homes, has featured the use of engineered timber beams from the portfolio of Wolf Systems: facilitating the rapid erection of the timber frame and the provision of long clear spans to create open living space.

108-110 Charles Street in Milford Haven has been built by R&S Developments Ltd, and contains a trio of single bedroom studios as well as half a dozen two bedroom apartments and two penthouses.

Mike Edds of Firwood Homes comments: “The old fishing harbour at Milford Haven has become a big focus for the leisure industry and this development offers very attractive sea views from the penthouses and some of the other flats.

“The design of the Charles Street building required us to provide easi-joist floors for two upper levels and also as the deck to a large area of flat roof over the penthouses. We offer easi-joist as an option for most of our contracts and, really there would have been no alternative for this project due to the length of the spans. Everyone is always very impressed with easi-joist as a product: they are so consistent, light in weight for site installation, offer plenty of space for fixing and routing services. They are excellent.”

As is common practice now in the construction of multi-occupancy buildings, the engineered timber floor joists form the key structural element to a party floor construction having to achieve high acoustic as well as fire performance standards.
