The Oldfield family were looking for a weekend getaway in the mountains but not too far from home. A five hectare site was found in Caversham Road, Lidgetton.
As the family business was involved in the design and erection of steel structures, the architect was requested utilise as much steel as possible.
Description of the structural framing
All columns and external rafters were fabricated in 200×100 hollow sections to allow them to be used for water evacuation. Rafters were simple 200×100 IPE sections. All steel was hot dip galvanised and painted internally where exposed. Externally all steel was left galvanised
The architect specified steel side cladding to match the roof with only the gables being constructed in face brick.
The most challenging part of the project was the detail in the flashings at the interface of the various elements, windows, doors, brickwork, gutters etc.
The use of steel allowed for high uninterrupted open spaces in the entertainment area as well as clear external areas.
