Prefab Excellence: Triangular Cottages at Diveagar Beach

Introduction:

Nestled along the picturesque shores of Diveagar Beach, a unique and innovative project is currently underway. Our team has embarked on a mission to create cost-effective, time-efficient, and architecturally stunning triangular cottages that not only provide a comfortable beachside retreat but also blend seamlessly with the natural beauty of their surroundings.



Challenges in Architectural Planning

When we received the client's request to construct triangular cottages, we were excited to tackle the challenge. The project had already undergone architectural design, but there was a crucial missing element – the structural framing. To overcome this hurdle, we proposed a solution that combines the best of structural stability, cost-efficiency, and rapid construction: a prefab-based system using tubular sections.



Materials and Construction Process

The innovative construction process includes several key elements:

 

Outer Sheeting: For the exterior of the cottages, we opted for a seamless, screw-less design using Color Coated Galvalume standing seam sheets. This not only ensures durability but also provides a sleek and modern look that enhances the aesthetics of the cottages.

 

Cement Sheeting: Beneath the outer layer, we installed cement sheets securely attached to tubular girts, with a 100mm gap. This setup not only reinforces the structure but also contributes to thermal insulation, keeping the cottages comfortable year-round.

 

Insulation: Between the cement sheeting and the wooden plank interior finish, we incorporated a 100mm layer of rock wool insulation. This choice of insulation material ensures energy efficiency and soundproofing, making the cottages an ideal place for relaxation and rejuvenation.

 

Interior Finish: To create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, the innermost finish consists of wooden planks. This not only adds a natural touch but also creates a cozy ambiance within the cottages.



 

Flooring: The cottages feature deck slab flooring, which is not only sturdy but also aesthetically pleasing. It provides a smooth and safe surface for occupants to enjoy.

 

Windows: We have designed the cottages with UPVC windows that offer excellent insulation and are low-maintenance. These windows allow natural light to flood the interior, offering breathtaking views of the beach.

 

Staircase: At the back of each cottage, a metal staircase provides easy access to the upper floor, ensuring convenience and safety.



Conclusion 

The construction of the triangular cottages at Diveagar Beach is an exciting endeavour that showcases the synergy between architectural ingenuity and efficient construction methods. Our commitment to providing a cost-effective, eco-friendly, and visually stunning retreat on the beachfront is driving this project forward. We look forward to sharing more about this project as construction continues and these charming cottages become a reality.

 

Stay tuned for updates on this exciting venture as we continue to shape the future of affordable and efficient beachside getaways.
