Floor (Standard Construction)

We use high density 18mm thick flooring grade tongue and groove board that is screwed and nailed to 145x36mm or 145x45mm stress graded timber floor joists. Joists are located at maximum 407mm centres. Joists are securely bolted to the steelwork at regular intervals.

Floor finishes depend on the home décor scheme and room. They can be carpet, vinyl, laminate, engineered wood, tile or cut stone. The floor deck is insulated with platinum grade rigid polystyrene which is held in position between joists with a continuous 125 micron, fire retardant micro-perforated barrier. Once the home is fully skirted, thermally our floor ‘U’ value is 0.26 W/m²/K or better which is 26% more than BS 3632:2015 requirements.
