Building products manufacturer Steadmans has supplied materials for a vineyard in the town made famous by TV series Last of the Summer Wine.
Holmfirth Vineyard, near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, now has a new winery courtesy of Premier Steel Buildings, located in Dunfermline, a Capital Steel Buildings distributor, and installer Ian Wilkinson, of Weathervane Roofing & Building, of Dronfield, Derbyshire.
The winery incorporates over 250 square metres of Steadmans AS35 insulated steel cladding finished in olive green - 80mm thick panels on the roof and 60mm panels in its walls. Steadmans also supplied all galvanised C-section framing, flashings and personnel access doors for the project, from its range of products suiting the contractor requiring a one stop shop.
Comprising two outer steel skins with an integral PIR insulation core, Steadmans AS35 insulated panels are available in a wide range of colours and complement Steadmans wide range of pre-engineered construction products such as gutters, flashings, rooflights and doors.
Howard Ashton-Jones, managing director, Premier Steel Buildings, said: Ive worked with Steadmans for about seven years and have used their composite panels before. When the client for the Holmfirth project made clear they wanted a structure meeting the specification for a heated building, I had no hesitation in nominating them again.
The Steadmans panels combine cladding and insulation, so they made the construction easy and give a clean, fresh, white appearance to the buildings interior. They have a substantial feel which, for me, creates proper buildings.
Overall, I cant fault anything Steadmans do. Theyre a very good company to work with, from the start to the finish of a job, which strives hard to ensure everything happens as it should.
Steadmans composite roof and wall panels are ideal for use in a wide variety of buildings, from commercial and warehouse to office blocks and leisure facilities. AS35 panels are manufactured in a quality process certified to ISO 9001:2008 using non-ozone depleting technology.
This provides designers with an environmentally-responsible product, with excellent thermal performance and a predicted service life of 40 years. Available in a range of thicknesses the panels can be specified to achieve insulation U-values, aiding compliance with the latest L2 regulations. The panels are also Loss Prevention Certification Board approved.
