Specification.

Structural Frame.

All of our spaces are made to last a lifetime and to endure the harshest environments. To achieve this, each of our spaces has a heavy gauge engineered skeletal metal frame that serves as a backbone. The backbone holds the building up and provides protected routes for all plumbing and electrical services across the entire building.

The frames are produced in individual linear sections, each connects to the other by connector pieces engineered to plug into the frame and be mechanically fixed as either a permanent or temporary installation. Our frames provide vertical, horizontal and diagonal support across the space. The frames form the skeleton of the space including the floor and roof.

Frame size & specification 

  • Linear Frame Lengths – 100mm x 100mm box section with a 5mm wall thickness – 4 x 8.5mm holes drilled on each end
  • Frame Connectors – 90mm x 90mm box section with a 5mm wall thickness – welded as either 3 or 4 way connectors
  • 4 x m8 drilled and tapped on each connector section
  • Frame Stubs – 90mm x 90mm box section with a 5mm wall thickness – 4 x m8 drilled and tapped on each connector section

Frame heights

A single storey frame assembly comes in two heights:

  • 8ft – 2440mm
  • 10ft – 3048mm

Mechanically fixed

Each linear frame section is connected to the other with a connector piece and mechanically fixed with 8 x high tensile m8 low profile hex headed bolts. Each bolt is installed with thread locking adhesive Loctite 243 to ensure it remains in position

Structural Walls.

3 main variants – Height, Thickness & Panel Type.

Our structural walls are made up of 2440mm x 1220mm panels for our standard height buildings or 3048mm x 1220mm panels for our taller range. The panels vary in thickness depending on the required specification.

Wall Thickness

  • 125mm thick panels – For extensions or smaller buildings
  • 244mm thick panels – For new build homes, larger spaces or spaces being installed in more extreme environments.

The panels are rebated along each edge allowing the frame to interlock seamlessly making a weather tight mechanical connection between the structural frame and structural panel.

Each panel is sealed using a marine grade SIKA DC 290 sealant. A 6mm bead of sealant is applied along every joint as the panels are being installed ensuring that the panels are not only weather tight but entirely airtight.

Standard

Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPS) – made up of 11mm osb3 front face, esp core insulation, 11mm osb3 reverse face.

Eco-Panel

Structural Stud Panel – FSC Hardwood timber frame, 11mm osb3 front face , Various insulation infills. (Compressed sheepswool, Cork)  11mm osb3 reverse face.

Extreme

Formed Polystyrene Panels – The highest level of insulation available constructed from super heated and pressed polystyrene producing a single component panel for use in the most challenging environments.

Structural Floors.

Our structural floors  are made up of 2440mm x 1220mm panels for spaces with even numbers of panel widths. Any spaces with odd number panel widths are assembled with our 3048mm x 1220mm panels. The panels vary in thickness depending on the required specifcation.

Floor Thickness

  • 125mm thick panels – For extensions or smaller buildings
  • 244mm thick panels – For new build homes, larger spaces or spaces being installed in more extreme environments.

The panels are rebated along each edge allowing the frame to interlock seamlessly making a weathertight mechanical connection between the structural frame and structural panel. Each panel is sealed using a marine grade SIKA DC 290 sealant. A 6mm bead of sealant is applied along every joint as the panels are being installed ensuring that the panels are not only weathertight but entirely airtight.

On our floors we apply additional beads of sealant in places where our panels are supported by the structural frame. We never want to hear a floor squeak!

Standard

Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPS) – made up of 11mm osb3 front face, esp core insulation, 11mm osb3 reverse face.

Eco-Panel

Structural Roof.

Like our walls, our structural roof has 3 main variants – Roof shape, Thickness & Panel Type.

Our structural roof is constructed using the same panel system as the structural walls and floors. The panel lengths and thickness vary depending on the space specification.

Panel thickness

  • 125mm thick panels – For extensions or smaller buildings
  • 244mm thick panels – For new build homes, larger spaces or spaces being installed in more extreme environments.

The panels are rebated along each edge allowing the frame to interlock seamlessly making a weather tight mechanical connection between the structural frame and structural panel. Each panel is sealed using a marine grade SIKA DC 290 sealant. A 6mm bead of sealant is applied along every joint as the panels are being installed ensuring that the panels are not only weather tight but entirely airtight.

Foundations.

One of the best features of choosing a build from us is that you can choose from a range of foundation options that will suit your project.

Helical Pile Foundations

Our foundations are cast aluminium helically formed screws. They are a turnkey solution to traditional style concrete foundations and have several benefits.

During the design phase of your project, Built & Spaces engineers utilise information gathered from the British Geological Survey to establish ground conditions (i.e. soil conditions in your area). This influences the depth at which the piles need to be installed.

Once our design team and engineers have established the number of piles required according to the weight of the build, Built & Spaces create bio-degradable templates which get laid directly onto the ground and enable millimetre perfect installation of each individual pile. Once this has been carried out, each pile is driven directly into the ground by hydraulic powered drilling equipment. Each pile section is driven into the ground at one-meter intervals and mechanically joined in order to create a pile of the desired length. This enables us to use this method for a wide variety of different projects. The in-situ proof testing gives a true value for the load capacity right there on the day so you as the client can be confident that all necessary procedures have been undertaken by us.

Once the piles are in place and testing has been carried out, pile caps and the frame of the build are mechanically fitted to each pile and then we are ready to build!

​The helical piles can be installed in any weather conditions, soil conditions and can be used near trees and in root protection zones of trees with TPOs (Tree Preservation Orders). They are also used in areas that have restricted access options due to minimal machinery being required. With less machinery being used, this helps minimize our environmental impact and means the project is completed at a much faster rate.

Installation of the foundations typically takes between 1-2 days dependent on the scale of the build. Unlike traditional foundation methods, there is no need to excavate the site which reduces time spend on groundworks, cost of soil disposal and time waiting for the foundations to set. All this also means less noise for you and your neighbors which we are sure they will be thankful for!

Wheels

Not many of our projects will need to travel but if yours does we’ve got you covered. Our spaces can be built with wheels attached meaning that you can move your space where you need it, when you need it.

Adjustable Feet

Perfect for indoor installations on surfaces that aren’t level, adjustable feet can be applied to your project.

Glazing.

Our spaces are installed with the best quality and specification double glazing available.

Standard Spec

6.8mm toughened laminate – Gas filled – 4mm toughened ecopane with a warm edge. Our 6.8mm laminate outside face provides the best security rating ensuring that your spaces is secure. The internal face is a 4mm ecopane providing a great thermal U value of 1.2.

Improved Thermal

With our improved thermal upgrade, you will get 6.8mm toughened laminate – Gas filled – 6.8mm toughened ecopane +  with a warm edge. This offers the improved thermal U value of 1.0, rather than 1.2 on the standard spec.

Improved Security

With our improved security upgrade, you will get 12mm toughened laminate single pane. This is perfect where security or ability to weather more challenging environments is more important than thermal efficiency.

Triple Glazing

With our triple glazing option, you can get ultra low thermal value.

Switchable Glass

This is an electronic film that is either laminated in or on a face of glass. When the glass is off it is entirely transparent. When activated the glass becomes opaque allowing only partial light and shadow to be seen from the opposing side offering immediate privacy. 

The glass operates on a low voltage 12v system which is hardwired into the space. This can be controlled from conventional wall switches alongside light switches. Alternatively the switchable glass can be controlled by a remote control. Switchable glass offers an anti-allergen solution to conventional curtains and blinds.

Electrical.

Our spaces are alive with technology. We have no intention of only meeting building regulations, we intend to exceed and set the standard in construction. Our electrical systems have been designed using technology from better regulated and more advanced sectors.

Core units

This is the beating heart, brain and muscle of the electrical systems in our spaces. We offer 8 powerful and intelligent self contained core units designed to power your space.

Solar Panels

Boost you free power source with solar. Option 1 can be applied to your roof or walls, Option 2 can be applied to your roof, walls or independently installed. Both solar options feed power into the core unit where power is stored in a battery pack. This can support the house or if installed on larger spaces can provide enough power to charge electric vehicles in addition to the space.

Looms

Straight out of automotive and marine tech. We may well be the only space builder to be doing it this way. All of our spaces are equipped with double insulated electrical loom systems. Our looms are pre-installed within the box section structural frame at high level with connections protruding every 1.2m enabling connectivity with the structural wall panels. Installing the looms at high level ensures that the electrical system is kept entirely separate from any contaminants, moisture or flooding.

Accompanying Core Units

Designed for spaces that are adjoining another or existing space. These are simple and functional unit which enables the space to be connected to the space it is adjoining and ensures that the space is correctly fused. This unit is housed in a polypropylene Wiska enclosure installed within a structural wall panel. The housing is accessed through a concealed flush door that is recessed flush to the wall. The core unit contains a 6 gang circuit breaker set, an RCD and terminations.

There are two options available:

  • 240v
  • 240v + 12v

Both options have the same dimensions (W:380mm x H:300mm).

Solar & Power Storage

We can provide solar power functionality with one of the following two options:

Solar Tiles

Solar tiles are small PV modules designed to resemble regular roofing. When the main barrier to investing in solar is appearance, PV tiles can be the perfect solution. The roof is a mix of PV and dummy tiles, which look the same but don’t generate electricity. These cover unfavourable parts of the roof, like north-facing or shaded surfaces, or to scale the size of the PV system to the electricity demand of the property. The main advantage is aesthetics, which is particularly important in conservation or protected areas.

Panel Fused Solar

We use a solar power module where the solar cells are directly fused to the building fabric in the factory to form the unified power roof / wall component. Available in two standard sizes of 120 and 240 nominal Watts. It is also available in non-standard sizes between 43 and 240 nominal Watts. This integration of the cells onto the metal substrates reduces the amount of material used as the metal acts as both carrier and barrier for the module.

Plumbing.

Our plumbing is split into 3 systems.

  • Fresh Water
  • Fresh Water Harvesting
  • Waste Water Removal

Our water systems and pipework are fitted at low level wherever possible and when we do run plumbing to roof height or to upper spaces we carefully isolate our plumbing from any of the electrical systems by running the vertical feed and wastes on the opposing sides of the building to the electrical looms. Overcautious maybe but we feel it the right thing to do.

Fresh Water

We use a PE-X barrier pipe in 15mm or 22mm diameter depending on the specification which is double insulated and pre installed and efficiently routed within our box section metal frames ensuring pipes are protected.

Fresh Water Harvesting

We highly recommend installing fresh water harvesting if the installation is suitable. All of our spaces are equipped with plumbing routes through the box section metal frame from roof level to ground level. A water harvesting tank ranging in size from 150L to 30,000L depending on requirement is installed externally to the space above ground. A high capacity (45lpm 1.5 bar) filtration and on demand pump is installed allowing the water to feed into your homes water system. A two way pressure valve is installed inline on the system to route water preferentially from the harvested water when available before routing from a mains water feed system.

Waste Water Removal

Waste water is routed through our Structural floor panels through flexible Saniflex hose. We carefully route waste water for the shortest possible route horizontally to an outside wall before routing vertically through one of the 4 corners of the space connecting directly to the ground drainage.

Doors Materials.

Our doors need to be elegant and functional, powerful and seamlessly easy to use.

We offer doors for every and any use and occasion. The consistent theme with our standard doors is the size. All of our standard  door openings are 2440mm x 1220mm making every door an impressive piece of engineering and offers an architectural statement. We can make custom size doors this does however come at a premium. There are exceptions such as garage doors and property entrance gates.

All of our range of doors have door straighteners and can be fire rated where required. We treat and produce all our doors with the same care and using only the most hardy materials. All of our doors are 50mm thick  and come in a range of materials with endless finish options.

Hardwood Doors

Oak, Mahogany, American Tulip.

Glazed Doors

30mm metal frame as standard or an optional extra glazed only. Single paned 12mm toughened, Double glazed.

Metal Doors

The most secure of our door range. This door is an elegant beast. Corten steel, Painted finish, Galvanised, Stainless steel or any of our non-ferrous metal finishes.

Door Operation.

We only install the very best hinges available. All of this ensures that any of our doors can be used as internal or external doors.

Edge Hinged

The most conventional of door hinged solutions. We feel that there is only one maker of hinges to turn to: Brusso Hinges.

Pivot Hinged

With a similar door opening action as a conventional door this option is slightly more architectural and more design orientated with no visual hinges on the door. We are really proud to  make our own in house pivot hinges for any door size.

Offset Pivot Hinged

With a similar door opening action as a conventional door this option is slightly more architectural and more design orientated with the knuckles of the hinges being more discreet than an edge hinged. We are really proud to  make our own in house pivot hinges for any door size.

Scissor Doors

Uses a pivot hinge which is installed either in the centre of the door or offset to one side of the door achieving a very attractive and smooth door operation with the door swinging half into the space or room or half out. We are really proud to make our own in house pivot hinges for any door size.

Pocket Doors

We couldn’t find a pocket door that meets our quality standards so we designed our own. We wanted a door that runs smoothly, conceals perfectly , impenetrable when needed, and have envelope panels that are as solid as the door that fits between them. Like the spaces that our doors or installed within we found a solution in a steel frame which supports the track and door stops creating a solid and reassuring door system.

Our pocket door system requires a two panel width space. 2440mm x 2440mm overall. One panel for the door opening and one panel for the door to slide into.

Automated Doors

Any of our door systems can be automated. We have taken this to the next level by designing entirely concealed door automation systems to work with any of our door types.

Concealed Doors

Sometimes a hidden door is a must have. This works on a pivot hinge system with the difference being that the door is installed entirely flush with the surrounding wall often painted or finished in the same colour to entirely conceal. Our hidden doors have a tolerance of 1.5mm gapping all around the door ensuring that the door is as hidden as can possibly be.

Garage Doors

Our single garage doors are an impressive 3.6m wide. Like everything we do we have put some thought into how the door operates and we have our own design which ensures the door fits and works seamlessly with the structural frame and wall panels. These can be either side or overhead hinged. Both options are automated as standard.

Roof.

Our range of finishes are the best in class. We have evaluated hundreds of finishes and solutions and summarised the most effective long lasting solutions to suit any build.

Nordic Standard

Is mill finish copper without any additional surface treatments carried out in the factory. It has the traditional ‘bright’ finish that will develop and change in the environment.

Nordic Brown Copper

Are pre-oxidised in the factory to give the same oxidised brown surface that otherwise develops over time in the environment. The thickness of the oxide layer determines the colour: both Nordic Brown Light and the darker Nordic Brown products are useful to minimise hand and other construction marks that can occur for a short time after installation with ‘bright’ standard copper. But light and dark versions can also be combined – with other finishes such as Nordic Standard – to create various visual effects.

Nordic Blue Copper

The ability to determine the type and intensity of blue patina for each project with choices of ‘Living’ surfaces. In a carefully controlled, factory process, pre-oxidised copper is treated with specifically formulated copper compounds to create the desired patina colours and heat-treated to chemically bind them to the copper. The factory process can be accurately controlled so that, as well as the solid blue patina colour, other intensities of patina flecks can be created revealing some of the dark oxidised background material.

Nordic Brass

Is an alloy of copper and tin with a similar colour to Nordic Standard initially. When exposed to the atmosphere, the surface gradually changes to a stable, dark chocolate brown. This process is slower than with Nordic Brass.

Nordic Bronze

Is an alloy of copper and tin with a similar colour to Nordic Standard initially. When exposed to the atmosphere, the surface gradually changes to a stable, dark chocolate brown. This process is slower than with Nordic Brass.

Nordic Royal

This is a great material that has a rich golden colour. To begin with it with have a sheen on but over time as this mixes with oxide, when exposed to the atmosphere it will have a Matt finish. Is an alloy of copper with aluminium and zinc, making it a very stable product.

Greencoat

This is a colour coated steel product. The process uses rapeseed oil in the coating, making GreenCoat the most sustainable colour coated steels for exterior buildings worldwide. The unique, patented BT coatings (Bio-based Technology) do not only offer environmental advantages, but also increased performance. GreenCoat products are highly resistant to corrosion, UV radiation as well as scratches.

It consists of a Nordic quality steel in the core with a zinc anti-corrosion coating followed by a primer. The top coating, which contains rapeseed oil, gives the material its final colour. As a high-quality roofing and cladding material, GreenCoat can be used for fully supported standing seams, shingles and reveal panels.

It can be used for industrial, commercial, residential or renovation applications where factors such as appearance, mechanical resistance, fire safety and long-life are important.

Stainless Steel

Rust-free stainless steel that has been developed for use on the building envelope. Our stainless steel is made from approx. 85% recycled material and is itself 100% recyclable. Stainless steel is available in various surface designs, offers an unbeatable life span and virtually free of maintenance.

Zinc

Our zinc  is produced from the highest purity zinc SHG 99.995% with additions of copper and titanium.
It is durable for over 80 years, corrosion resistant, does not require maintenance.

  • Bright Rolled – Initial bright surface that quickly forms a light grey patina, under atmospheric conditions.
  • Pre-aged Mat light grey patina surface, chemically created to represent weathered zinc.
  • Carbon Mat dark grey patina surface, chemically created to represent dark weathered zinc.

Composites

Our composite roofs are made using  epoxy and reinforcing fabrics to increase tensile strength, and resist hairline cracks and abrasion, greatly improving the longevity. This is a great solution for a roof being installed in a challenging environment. We carefully select the type of weave and orient the fibers to best address the direction of the loads within the structure.

Sika Sarnifil

Is a PVC, multi-layer, self-adhesive, lacquered matt finish, weldable sheet membrane with a glass fibre reinforcing inlay. Contains ultraviolet light stabilizers and flame retardants to provide a colour stable, fast installation, low maintenance and durable membrane. Thickness 1,5 mm.

Solar Tiles

Solar tiles are small PV modules designed to resemble regular roofing. When the main barrier to investing in solar is appearance, PV tiles can be the perfect solution. The roof is a mix of PV and dummy tiles, which look the same but don’t generate electricity. These cover unfavorable parts of the roof, like north-facing or shaded surfaces, or to scale the size of the PV system to the electricity demand of the property. The main advantage is aesthetics, which is particularly important in conservation or protected areas.

Panel Fused Solar

We use a solar power module where the solar cells are directly fused to the building fabric in the factory to form the unified power roof / wall component. Available in two standard sizes of 120 and 240 nominal Watts. It is also available in non-standard sizes between 43 and 240 nominal Watts. This integration of the cells onto the metal substrates reduces the amount of material used as the metal acts as both carrier and barrier for the module.

Both solar options feed power into the core unit where power is stored in a battery pack. This can support the house or if installed on larger spaces can provide enough power to charge electric vehicles in addition to the space

Ceiling Finishes & Interior Walls.

Our interiors are special and we ensure that we offer a range of the best finishes to suit every use and style.

Low & High Level Lighting

We love going the extra mile. Most of our spaces are equipped with low or high level strip lighting. We have been enjoying making a feature of our strip lighting lately. This doesn’t always have to be the case. We can install subtle strip lights behind reveals and concealed panels to give a very understated back light to any space.

Hardware.

The look and feel of your space can be defined by the attention to detail that can often be found in the small things like the hardware installed in a space. The door handles, the wall mounted coat hook or the simple door stop. We carefully select our suppliers to ensure you only get the very best design and quality product.

Bathrooms/Taps.

Tactile and elegant is what we look for in a good tap. It has to look good and be silky smooth in both the way the way it works but also how the water flows. We work with only a few select suppliers to achieve this.

Lusso Stone

A Luxury bathroom brand, you can have the same finished as some of the top hotels known, Claridges, Albrighton Hall & Spa, The Bulld Shed.  Using engineered designs and architecture at the heart, it produces great quality and hardwearing products. One of the Lusso deisgners, works between the UK and Milan, making sure that continental style is within the products.

They offer unique and individual pieces, vanity units, basins and even pedestal basins. Founded in 1998 and opened their showroom in 2003 in the Cotswolds. Family run business with Spanish influence being the designs.

Kitchens.

Unquestionably the heart of a any home or space. We have 4 off the shelf kitchen styles. Each kitchen style can be applied to any size space. You select your kitchen style, the colour and the hardware and we work with you to arrange the layout. We can also design a custom kitchen if you have something special in mind.

Industrial Brute

This kitchen style is as the name suggests brutalist. 

Constructed from the same frame that our buildings are made from with obscenely over engineered 6mm steel surfaces and doors. This can be manufactured in a number of finishes and is made to be indestructible and visually striking. Simply made to last not just a lifetime but many lifetimes. The steelwork is raw but in the right setting it is an impactful statement piece. We use a mix of structural steels and non ferrous finishes such as copper followed in many instances by glass and stone.

Contemporary

Simplicity and minimalist is key to achieving a great contemporary kitchen. Concealed hinges, thoughtful and detailed design to ensure that the space flows effectively and there is somewhere to put every last kitchen utensil and appliance. From that you can let your imagination run wild with an unrestricted range of materials, finishes and colours. The simple beauty of the exterior belies the depth of thought and obsessive workmanship that is put into the smallest of details. Doors close with a satisfying silence. Seamless surfaces make the more mundane tasks of wiping and cleaning a little easier.

The Achievable

This is a kitchen for those where cost is the most important factor. Keeping it real doesn’t mean that a kitchen has to be boring. We have kept this ultra simple and slimmed down the spec to deliver a truly bank for buck kitchen that has every bit as much intrigue and quality design as any of the rest of our range.

Shaker

We love traditional, classical forms and designs, and our classic Shaker kitchens are precisely that. Traditional kitchens design drawing upon the required design ques but remade to fit your space.

Appliances.

Creating your kitchen or laundry is simple. You select the appliances you want from Fisher & Paykel website and tell us what you want. We work with you to configure the appliances into your space and we supply the appliances at RRP with your space.

Fisher & Paykel

We are proud to exclusively supply Fisher & Paykel appliances. A lot of research and testing backed by engineering experience had us decide that in the world of appliances there is only one brand that offers an exceptional product for a reasonable price. Their product is outstanding in design and the quality is evident.

Buster & Punch

12mm Toughened laminate single pane where security or ability to weather more challenging environments is more important than thermal efficiency.

Audio.

We love our music at Built & Spaces. With our range of audio packages, you can make your space sing!

We have chosen a slightly unconventional route here but we are sure you will thank us for it. We exclusively install Rockford Fosgate speakers and amplifiers into our spaces. Made in America for the automotive and marine industry this may seem a little off piste. But if it is off piste then this is where we like to be.

Rockfords product is off the chart incredible. We have never met a supplier that has done more to break the boundaries of what can be done. Some of their product is outright insane (beautifully insane) and the results are spectacular. It may have been designed for a different industry but having tested their product exhaustively we know that the depth and richness in sound and quality cannot be beaten by even the most prestigious audio manufacturers of far more expensive equipment.

We love Rockford… always have always will.

We have curated 4 off the shelf systems and offer a custom system design service if you have something special in mind. Each of our off the shelf range of audio systems can be linked or extended. If you are looking at a multi room system we can work with you to make sure this is being done in the most effective way.
