Homer Hill Farm Shop, Houghton le Spring

Our client required his existing farm shop to be extended to provide a cafe area. Northern Structures where happy to work with the client in order to design the project, fabricate the steel work and erect the structure.

The steel frame measured some, 12.2m long x 10.675m wide x 2.4m high.  The structure sits on a perimeter strip foundation with holding down bolts set within.

The roof has been clad using a Decra Classic Tiles over a Kingspan composite panel. Velux windows have been installed to offer natural light.

The exterior walls to the north east and north west elevations are formed using natural reclaimed sandstone with a 100mm insulated cavity using concrete blocks on the internal side. The walls to the south east are constructed using cavity block work with cavity insulation.

Northern Structures also carried out internal fittings work including, plastering, plumbing and drainage, and decoration.
