Catnic steel lintels chosen for new residential build

Catnic’s steel lintels feature in an executive new build of residential dwellings in Thurstonfield, Carlisle.

Built by property developers Maris Properties Ltd, Catnic was chosen for the development as it offers a bespoke service for specifying energy efficient, quality lintels that are required to help meet the building envelope’s performance criteria.

The development includes 19 four bedroom detached properties, each of which contains 14 lintels that support the large glass windows throughout the internal fabric of the buildings. An external facing brick construction method was used and the windows feature sandstone heads above each window unit, adding to the unique design of the homes.

The larger windows in the development required slightly different specification lintels. To specify the correct lintels and ensure Maris Properties and Local Building Authority Controls (LABC) were happy with the product, Maris used the Catnic Lintel Advanced Scheduling Service.

Stephen Lavery, director at Maris Properties, explains why Catnic’s lintels are used: “Catnic lintels are not only high quality, lasting components but they also meet the demanding energy efficient targets we have to achieve. The lintel scheduling service helped us feel at ease when choosing lintels we wouldn’t normally use"
