The Oakridge Estate, Basingstoke:

Light steel frame panels have been applied in low rise housing designed by Hunt Thompson Architects. A varied street scene was produced by using bay and dormer elements on essentially standardised house types.

Client for the project is Sentinel Housing Group, Main contractor: Walter Llewellyn & Sons Ltd, with steel frame system design by The Forge Company.

Structural light steel frames from Ayrshire Steel Framing are clad with brick to the lower story and rendered external wall insulation system by Permarock above. Timber weatherboarding is used to clad projecting window bays, with GRP dormer/balcony units above.
