Designer, manufacturer and installer of light gauge steel building solutions, Icarus LSF, is nearing completion of its largest low-rise housing development to date. 155 new homes are being delivered at Barnes Village in Cheadle, Greater Manchester, using Icarus LSF's advanced off-site manufacturing system. Using advanced 3D modelling techniques, Icarus LSF developed an LSF solution that would enable rapid manufacture and a significant reduction in site activities. The system used state-of-the-art manufacturing technology to form and assemble a panelised superstructure for each home in a factory controlled environment, before transportation to site where rapid final assembly takes place. Meaning not only that the houses could be assembled rapidly, but that each unit could quickly be made watertight for the progression of follow-on trades.
