Joists & Trusses for Spitfire Homes Pirton

We are delighted to have taken our initial order from Spitfire Bespoke Homes who are based in Solihull and Maidenhead.

Work has begun on Spitfire’s new development of 24 plots in the village of Pirton, North Hertfordshire and our deliveries commenced in early September. These homes are typical of Spitfire’s impressive building portfolio, with unique offerings such as distinctive external finishes and flexible modern living spaces.

This first order is an interesting and versatile project for RML, as we are supplying joists and a range of trusses including Attic, Raised Tie and Standard types.

Supplying a variety of trusses for a mixture of house types has given us the opportunity to prove how we excel in production challenges such as large spans and tall trusses.

While it may be advantageous from a cost point of view to supply tall trusses in a single part and invert them for delivery, the action of turning them back over on site presents risk of injury and damage to the trusses. We are therefore transporting these taller trusses in separate parts and keeping them facing upwards. The additional webs also provide improved safety benefits through creating another possible working platform for the high-level bracing.

As we currently sponsor the ‘Best Medium Housebuilder’ category at the WhatHouse Awards, it is fitting that we are working closely with Spitfire after they won Silver in this award only last year! Along with succeeding in many other awards such as ‘Best Customer Satisfaction Initiative’ by the Housebuilder Awards, Spitfire are certainly a company we are proud to supply.
