Dhamecha Warehouse Units, Leicester
About this project
We were asked to divide new build warehouse into 7 separate units. We achieved this using the Fermacell Jumbo Stud F60S system to build 6 high bay walls.
The F60S jumbo stud wall partitions provide 60 minutes of fire resistance and 54db of soundproofing.
All partitions were built on an existing block wall from 2.4 m up to nearly 9m in height. All partitions were the same size, 16m long. We were responsible for taping and jointing all the walls and skimmed them all to provide smooth finish ready for painting. The Fermacell F60 was built with a deep head channel to provide appropriate head deflection for the walls.
The partitions were based on SFS 200mm wide stud together with Fermacell Ultimate Performance board and 75mm mineral wool insulation slabs between it.
We had a 3 weeks build program, but finished it within a week. Our client was shocked at how we managed to do this. We had 6 experienced operatives on site for this project, working from 8am to 6pm each day, which enabled us to complete the project so quickly.
We finished on the Saturday and we were ready to go after leaving the site clean and tidy.
