H+H - Solid wall For Scotland

Scottish house-builders Malcolm Allen used H+H Celcon Blocks Standard Grade in solid external wall constructions at their Broadmeadows development of family homes near Aberdeen. The solid wall design was chosen for its speed of build and excellent thermal insulation.

The superstructures for the 2, 3 and 4 bedroom family homes are made from 440x215x215mm 7n Celcon Blocks joined together with traditional mortar. Malcolm Allen also used 440x215x300mm Celcon 7n blocks in the foundations.

Managing Director Bert Lyon said: “We use Celcon Blocks on every build we do and Broadmeadows is a good example of why. Speed is important, and due to our experience using Celcon Blocks we built two houses a week using just four staff with two apprentices.”

He added: “We can build from DPC to wall head in a day, something not achievable using other methods and we can also build in bad weather, which is particularly important in Scotland. The customer service we receive from H+H is also second to none.”

The completed external walls for all homes at Broadmeadows are coated with dry dash roughcasting with fyfestone feature panels on some house styles. Internally, walls are finished using 100mm Kingspan insulation with 38x63mm timber posting covered with plasterboard and then a skim coat of plaster of taped finish.

Due for completion in July this year, the Broadmeadows development also makes use of renewable technologies in the form of roof mounted solar thermal panels and innovative energy efficient gas central heating systems.
