U-Roofs Bob Lyons recently gave a series of presentations describing how using U-Roofs design methodology could improve these areas. Mr Lyons stated:
Although our approach may be deemed as too different for some in the industry it is important to remember that this system uses a traditional approach but takes it to the next stage. The prefabricated units are all manufactured to tolerances of +/- 1mm, the joists are produced with fixing holes and notching plus service holes for follow on trades, as standard. Our system can be assembled at ground level and can be put together by any competent person for a full or modular lift. If required it can be assembled in position on the structure itself. The system has been developed to suit the traditional, steel frame, timber, thin joint or modular building methods. No two sites are the same and structure sizes and configurations do vary, but we know that by using our system site installation periods will be reduced and if assembled at low level, health and safety is improved, reducing costs and the possibility of accident.
