PYC Construction’s bespoke passive house makes good use of Norbord’s CaberDek flooring
Welsh passive housebuilder, PYC Construction naturally selects high quality timber products to create low energy, high performance homes.
A fine example of the company’s sustainable buildings is a bespoke two-storey house with vaulted ceilings which is under construction in Nesscliffe, Shropshire. Constructing fully-insulated panels in the housebuilding factory enabled PYC Construction to erect the house on site in just two weeks from slab to watertight shell.
The efficient build process was aided by the use of Norbord’s CaberDek flooring. A go-to product for PYC Construction, Project Manager, Ben Wilson, said “We use 22mm CaberDek on the intermediate floor of all our projects as it provides a great structure for a floor when coupled with our posi-joint system. CaberDek is strong and provides a flooring covering that is both robust and cost-effective”.
Another advantage of CaberDek that PYC Construction favours is the film covering which Ben says “is excellent at keeping moisture out during construction and makes it really easy to keep the site tidy as dirt doesn’t stick to it. The film, along with the tongue and groove edges on CaberDek, makes it easy to work with and prevents delays to our on-site time”.
CaberDek, part of Norbord’s CaberFloor range, is designed to withstand the elements for up to 42 days between laying the floor and fixing the roof. Samples of CaberDek, and Norbord’s other construction panels, can be ordered on the website, norbord.co.uk.
