CCG OSM and Fjordhus partnership continues across UK

The completed Isle of Harris property

A partnership between Glasgow-based off-site manufacturing specialist CCG OSM and Galashiels timber frame contractor Fjordhus Ltd is set to continue in 2018 with its fourth project due on site in February.

Working collaboratively with parent construction company CCG (Scotland) Ltd and partners from across the industry, CCG OSM assists with the delivery of one-off villas to large-scale, urban regeneration schemes as well as commercial, care and education projects.

Through the utilisation of OSM’s iQ closed panel timber frame system, Fjordhus has been able to enhance its own offering in the self-build sector to create private homes for clients as far north as Skye and as far south as Southampton.

The partnership is set to continue in 2018 with a 5-bedroom home in Edinburgh, a 4-bedroom home in Melrose, and a 6-bedroom home in Southampton set to be on site in January and a fourth project set to be on site in Hawick in February.

All of the developments will utilise the OSM iQ closed panel timber frame system for the construction delivered to specification stage 3. The wall panel solution will be delivered to site inclusive of insulation, windows, doors and pre-fitted electrical service provisions.

With components installed under factory-controlled conditions, Fjordhus are given assurance of right-first-time quality whilst the speed of manufacture and logistical flexibility brought by the use of the system ensures a faster speed of delivery and erection when on site, a key factor when taking into account remote geographical areas and external factors such as the weather.

Steven Earlie, CCG OSM managing director, said: “The CCG OSM closed panel timber frame system is manufactured to the highest quality standard offering efficiencies to Fjordhus during construction and to the homeowner with excellent environmental properties allowing for long-term savings on energy bills.

“Working with Fjordhus, clients across the UK are benefiting from the use of the iQ system due to the inherent advantages a panelised system brings to a construction programme. This is personified by a project that was recently completed in the Isle of Harris: with components pre-installed, ease of transport and a faster speed of erection, difficulties associated with a remote location are vastly reduced by removing the inefficiencies of the site environment.

“Combined with Fjordhus’ expertise, the contracts being delivered in 2018 will reap the rewards of off-site manufacturing and we look forward to seeing them coming to fruition later in the year.“
