OC Projects Ltd was very pleased to work with existing client on a barn conversion project. Their client had a barn with listed building status and turned to the experts to convert this for housing a precious selection of vintage cars!
Following site setup, existing lighting, electrics and power were stripped out. Timber roof beams were stripped out providing a suitable flat surface for new steelworks. Some internal block walls were demolished. An area of the rear wall brickwork had crumbled which was carefully repaired and re-built. Some areas of walls needed underpinning undertaken in 3 stages upto existing shallow foundations. Trenching was excavated to 600mm for new electrical sub-main from the main supply in the Main Building.
All of the existing poor condition concrete floor was broken up and area excavated for new pad foundations and new steel columns to support existing roof beams. Mesh and insulation installed below the new concrete RC floor. Concrete poured to give a good solid area for storing the prized cars. New ‘goal post’ steel SHS columns was fabricated supporting a 250 x 150mm RHS steel beam spanning the wide 6m entrance. PFC steels were installed either side of existing roof beams to strengthen up. A new internal insulated OSB wall was built around the building perimeter.
The underside of the roof was insulated and overboarded. New electrical works included new distribution board, armoured underground cable, 10 twin wall mounted LED task lights IP rated. Emergency lights, 10 surface mounted metal clad double sockets, 2 metal light switches, and 4 panel heaters. PVC guttering and downpipes installed.
