Old Bakery, Ashford
Old meets the new at this stunning new development in Ashford, Kent. What makes this project so interesting, aside from its bakery heritage, is that the building now consists of both traditional and modern, sustainable methods of construction. It truly is an embodiment of old meeting new.
An open panel system was used in the construction of this project. The timber frame addition neutralises its years of Victorian carbon emissions. Speed of build was also a key deciding factor in opting for timber, as well as making it structurally feasible in adding onto an existing building without the need for lots of steel.
Paramount Timber Frame were able to work with the extension to the existing building, which many other timber frame companies were not able to accomodate. We were also flexible in how we adapted our sequencing of operations in order to facilitate the project.
