Self Building For Success: A Case Study

Robinson Manufacturing (RML) is providing our products to the property extension for self-build customer Mary Rogers.

With installation of our roof trusses and metal web joists commencing next week, we have designed the metal web joists at a pitch in a unique approach that offers insulation benefits. Not only are greater rafter spans possible but they also negated extra steel purlins which would have added extra costs, created bulkheads and impeded the desired glazing within the roof.

Regular communication with the architect, structural engineer, client and their builders to scope out what was feasibly achievable has been described by Truss Designer & Estimator Steve Grice as one of the most successful parts of the project. He also comments that he has enjoyed working within the programme to achieve the result the client wanted and relished the opportunity to work on the aspects of the project where more complex design was required.

Mary has this to say on working with Robinson Manufacturing (RML):

“Having never attempted a project of this scale before, the support I have received from RML has been invaluable. From design to finances, I have been helped every step of the way and have everything explained to me in a digestible manner. To now be looking at the installation of a top-quality product has been the final piece of the puzzle. I would not hesitate in recommending working with Robinson Manufacturing.”
