Shropshire Roof Construction Company Makes UK History

A Shropshire based company has made history as the first property developer in the UK to have an entire roof, complete with tiles, fitted via a crane to one of their  steel framed houses, earlier this month.

Balfours are currently marketing the Clutton Homes, Orchid Meadows Development at Minsterley which are precise modular steel frame homes. Says Scott: “We are all familiar with pre-fabricated walls, but for the entire roof to be craned into place in one is totally ground breaking.”

This concept was the conceived by Rob Clutton, and engineered in conjunction with two Shrewsbury companies:- Lynx trusses and Envirotile.

Rob realised that if engineered and lifted from the apex, the roof could be built on the ground fully tiled, ensuring quicker and safer build process without the need for scaffold. This has then allowed the full construction of a property in three days from ground slab to water tight.

Presentation and finish of the homes is set to match the cutting edge construction. The semi-detached two bedroom “Bolton”  and three bedroom  “Lannister” are each designed with a contemporary finish, to provide two spacious reception rooms on the ground floor, namely the lounge and kitchen dining room.

Situated on the edge of the popular village of Minsterley, the homes each enjoy rural views, yet are close to a full complement of services including primary school, plus secondary school in neighbouring Pontesbury. Shrewsbury is less than ten miles away, with easy links to the bypass and trunk roads to the Midlands and the north.”

Marketed within the scope of the “Help to Buy” equity loan, the Government lends up to 20% of the cost, so only a 5% cash deposit is needed and a 75% mortgage to make up the rest. The two bedroomed “Bolton” is marketed with a guide price of £145,000 while the “Lannister” comes in at £170,000.
