The MFS system offers all the benefits of traditional construction, plus the speed, efficiency and productivity of system building.
- Improves quality and build times
- Reduces waste and defects
- No off-site manufacturing costs
- No up front payments or deposit required
- Cost effective alternative to timber frame
- Using Timber frame could mean you pay 90% up front before any on-site work is done. Add on the high cost of insuring the timber, and you start to see why building with thin joint blockwork makes economic sense.
Enhanced build quality
Using the latest thin joint masonry systems together with integrated engineered flooring systems and roofing systems:
- Improves air tightness
- Enhances thermal performance
- Improves sound performance
- Reduces the building’s susceptibility to prevailing weather conditions.
‘Lean thinking’ principles
Eliminating the face brickwork or exterior cladding from the ‘critical path’ enables MFS to construct a typical pair of semi-detached houses from ‘oversite to watertight’ in ten working days.
- Provides all the advantages of ‘off-site’ manufacture plus the convenience of ‘on-site’ production
- Build matches robustness of solid masonry
- Can accommodate bespoke or individual design
- Satisfies the latest standards of both Part E and L of the Building Regulations
- Complies with the latest Robust Details.
- The MFS system meets the criteria of ‘non off-site’ manufacture, achieving Modern Method of Construction (MMC) status under Housing Corporation guidelines.
- Mostly use environmentally sound building products with ‘A’ ratings, according to the Green Guide to Housing
- Employ local labour
- Implement ‘on-site’ training
- The above help meet criteria for development under the Code for Sustainable Homes and make a significant contribution to the overall sustainability within the community.
- Specialist installers of H + H Celcon products
- Offer complete masonry solution using solid wall construction
- Use Jamera Flooring systems offering greater versatility and robustness.
