I-Joist order for development in Stockport

We are now seeing more of our quotes – produced prior to the lockdown – being put into action as production levels increase. It has been great to see a particular growth in joists within the business, receiving some more confirmation of orders for large sites such as described below in Stockport.
After initially producing a quote in February this year, we have received an order of our I-Joists for a significant development in Stockport. This is part of a larger scheme to improve the housing offering to the area, with a mixture of 1 & 2 bed apartments and 2, 3 & 4 bed houses for affordable rent, shared ownership and some for sale.
This project will offer 99 new build units, the refurbishment of a previous factory into 14 apartments and 34 houses. Affordable housing is in great demand within the local area of Stockport, so we are pleased to be able to contribute to the £1bn regeneration plan for the area. The factory is the last remaining example of Stockport’s hat making tradition and our customer is delighted to be restoring that with a blend of new housing which will bring the old building back to life.
As our customer moves ahead with their production, we will be expecting call offs for this site in the very near future and our Flooring teams look forward to working on this order.

If you have a development project you’d like to talk to our timber frame team about, email sales@rmuk.co.uk or call us on 01933 279597.
