SIPS Garden Rooms are the first garden room supplier to adopt alloy pile foundations rather than alternative galvanised versions. These alloy piles will last for hundreds of years.
In addition to adopting this new foundation they are also now able to provide exact load calculations for their buildings as Quentin Farrow of SIPS Garden Rooms explains:
We’re the first Garden Room company that offer a true load(kN)reading for the foundations(test results are supplied to Building Control) which takes any guess work out of the required engineers calculations(commercial; twice the loads as residential)to adhere to building regulations. Ground conditions are the biggest worry for any building and this particular method that we are championing takes all the guesswork away and we are 100% sure that each pile will fully comply with the structural calculations done for the actual building itself…a first in this industry.”
This new system was used on this multipurpose classroom. SIPS Garden Rooms have built several school classroom buildings each one in their distinctive style.
This modern learning environment features triple glazed doors and windows. An airforce heat pump has been fitted and the overall building recorded an air permeability test of 1.7 – impressive.
Internally the classroom is light and airy and features LED lighting and a touch screen teaching TV.
