The gull-wing’ prefabricated buildings comprise two 10m x 3m sections that are easily craned into position and abutted from one site to another. Currently 22 units are being produced for sites across the country.
Each section is roofed in the factory using Protan SE 1.2mm single ply membrane; once on site, the two halves are sealed with a site welded Protan SE 1.2mm cover strip to waterproof the join between.
Avant brands Ben Bailey and Bett Homes have already specified Protan SE, emphasising its cost and quality, alongside a consistent level of technical support and installation nationwide.
Protan membrane achieves durability for up to 30 years, with air leakage controlled/minimised in line with latest Building Regulations.
Avant Group Architect Colin Houston: Avant is all about design and style, all inclusive, and the show suites reflect that.
Further, they must fulfill their function, showcase the materials we use, and minimise our carbon footprint. We intend to relocate each a minimum of three times, and hopefully more.
The portability of the construction is a key feature, and a further reason why we chose Protan; we value the product quality, but we also know that, wherever we move the units to, there will be a professional, approved contractor to execute the jointing detail on site.
