You would have done well if you did!!

Despite supplying all of the roofs on this batch of cylindrical buildings we only got a small showing on the episode aired a fortnight or so ago.

This show features Paul and Amy Wilkinson as they undertake an ambitious £1.2 million build on a 16-acre lakeside plot. The program, hosted by Kevin McCloud follows some of the most groundbreaking builds across the UK, from laying the first brick to completion.

All five roofs and the first floor of the main cylinder were designed, manufactured and supplied by our branch in Boston and are constructed using the MiTek Posi -Joist system. Throughout the project we worked closely with Inspire Timber Systems to make sure every detail was perfect, special thanks reserved to Neil & the team, it was great working with you.

Posi-Joists allow for greater spans at smaller depths than traditional solid timbers and their open web system allows for pipework and wiring to pass through with no alterations or notching required. To read more about Posi-Joists, please see our product page.

For a short highlight reel, you can pop to Grand Designs Twitter to see the finalised build: https://twitter.com/granddesigns/status/1171890981324623872?s=11
