As standard our Helix studios

have the following specification;

FOUNDATIONS: Galvanised steel pile foundations 865, 1000 or 1200mm depth depending on ground conditions.

MAIN STRUCTURE: Floor, wall and ceiling are built using precision engineered SIPs (structured insulated panels). Each panel consists of an insulating layer of rigid polyurethane between two layers of oriented strand board (OSB), with flanges that slot into the neighbouring panel, ensuring speedy construction with no cold bridging. SIPs provide immense structural rigidity, effectively combining several components of conventional building, such as joists, insulation, vapour barrier and air barrier. SIPs are exceptionally thermally efficient commanding very low u values. 

DOORS, WINDOWS and SCREENS: A standard helix studio will consist of a combination of the following: French doors (1.8m wide x 2.05m), fixed glazed screens (0.9m wide x 2.05m), top hung opening window (1.2m wide x 0.48m). All frames are uPVC. Double glazing is Argon filled toughened glass with 'A' rated energy performance.

ROOF CONSTRUCTION: Single ply Firestone rubber (EPDM) roofing system (20 year guarantee, 50 year expected life) with aluminium trim and finished with black plastic rainwater guttering (including gutter guard).

EXTERNAL CLADDING: Kiln dried Thermowood (maintenance free) cladding with hidden stainless steel fixings. Soffits are painted in Tikkurila ultra paint to match glazing frames.

INTERNAL FINISH: All walls are skim plastered & decorated mat white as standard or in a paint of your choice. Each room is finished with contemporary 4" painted skirting.

FLOORING: We offer a wide choice of deluxe laminates which come with a 25 year residential warranty. Each plank is 10mm thick with bevelled edges resulting in a distinctive v groove, adding depth and authenticity to their wood effect finish.

FIXTURES & FITTINGS: Depending on size and style, your studio will incorporate up to 4 contemporary 5' 'butterfly style' strip lights, a consumer unit with RCD, light switches (white) and 3-8 double power sockets (white).
