Nuspan Flooring provides a high-performance, precast, insulated flooring system for the construction of suspended ground floors in new build housing and small-scale commercial buildings. With an uplift in build speed of up to 500%, a labour saving of up to 83%, and a total elimination of onsite waste, Nuspan’s offsite system has become a nationwide leading modern method of construction (MMC).
Nuspan’s insulated precast concrete units (IPCU) comprise structural-grade reinforced concrete bonded to high-performance expanded polystyrene (EPS). They can achieve U-values as low as 0.10 W/m2K, so offer a thermally efficient solution. At the same time, due to the offsite manufacturing process, Nuspan’s expert installation team provide fast construction, usually completing a standard plot within an hour, providing a safe platform for the follow-on trades to move in as quickly as possible. Just-in-time deliveries take the units to site ready for immediate installation.
Incorporating Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) principles and digital integration allows for standardisation and repeatability. This acts as an enabler for housebuilders to work towards meeting various industry drives towards innovation. These include targets set by the Construction Leadership Council, the MHCLG’s Modern Methods of Construction Report, and both the government’s Construction Sector Deal and their Industrial Strategy / Construction 2025 policy.
Three Winning Facts:
- Nuspan’s offsite system allows an uplift in build speed of up to 500%, a labour saving of up to 83%, and a total elimination of waste.
- Nuspan’s slabs are produced entirely offsite, where long moulding bays are set up to allow for standard sizes by default, offering infinite repeatability, if required.
- Nuspan’s offsite IPCU slabs are thermally efficient, achieving U-values as low as 0.10W/m2k, which already exceeds Future Homes Standard Part L legislation which will only come into force in 2025.
