Catnic lintels used for Seven Acres home development

New homes by Homes by Skanska at Trumpington in Cambridge are being constructed using Catnic’s lintels, to provide structural support within the windows and doors of these Scandinavian style houses and apartments.

Seven Acres is being constructed in two phases by Homes by Skanska and will ultimately form part of Great Kneighton, a major urban extension to Cambridge.

The homes have been designed to meet the government’s Lifetime Homes standard, achieving levels 3 and 4 of the Code for Sustainable Homes.

‘Fabric First’ is at the heart of Homes by Skanska’s approach to sustainability. Catnic’s standard lintels are able to contribute to this by enabling housebuilders to achieve optimal efficiency through the lintels within cavity walls. Specification of lintels that are designed to reduce thermal bridging – optimising steel use through discrete brackets instead of continuous base plates – provides a highly efficient solution to the building envelope.

Steve Blythe, Supply Chain Manager at Skanska explains “Catnic is able to provide quality products according to the demands of the project at a competitive price.”
