Octagon Barn Complex, Norfolk

Octagon Barn Complex, Norfolk

Client: Ingleton Wood LLP
Type of works: supply and installation of steel compression and tension bars.

Steel compression and tension members from Ancon have been installed in the roof trusses on the Octagon Barn office complex in Norfolk, UK.

A combination of timber and steel can often use the best properties of each material and achieve a cost-effective and attractive design. The Ancon components also allow generous adjustments to be made on site to accommodate any inaccuracies, thereby simplifying the installation of the frame.

The project involved the conversion of a range of old agricultural buildings, as well as a number of new build units. All materials used on the project were designed to complement the look of the existing listed buildings which include a 19th Century Grade II Listed Octagon Barn, one of only five in the UK.

The Ancon system comprised M16 carbon steel components and was specified by Ingleton Wood LLP (www.ingletonwood.co.uk).

Ancon tension and compression bars are available in carbon and stainless steel. Components can be used to create a variety of assemblies from single bars to complex bracing systems involving several bars joined at one point. Systems can be designed and manufactured to suit the requirements of any application.
