55 The buildings have been designed to meet/or exceed Breeam standards and are rated very good even before local conditions are considered.

56 Breeam Excellent or even Carbon Positive status is readily achievable with the addition of a solar array or other renewable energy source.

57 Weatherworks, Energy consultants, were commissioned by Cabinco to assess efficiency of our buildings and have reported that our standard specification can achieve Carbon Neutral or even Carbon Positive with the addition of a solar array.

58 This is based on air tightness of 3m ³ /hr at 50Pa or below and our existing excellent U values.

76 However, most clients are looking for sustainability and therefore select Timber Cladding in either Western Red Cedar or Siberian Larch in 22mm

77 External Cladding can be provided in a variety of different finishes. However, most clients are looking for sustainability and therefore select Timber Cladding in either Western Red Cedar or Siberian Larch in 22mm These cladding types do not require preservative treatment, will weather naturally to an attractive silver grey colour, and last 60 – 80 years plus

78 External Cladding can be provided in a variety of different finishes. However, most clients are looking for sustainability and therefore select Timber Cladding in either Western Red Cedar or Siberian Larch in 22mm These cladding types do not require preservative treatment and will weather naturally to an attractive silver grey colour and last 60 – 80 years plus As an external cladding, it can replaced without internal disruption. This also affords ready access to services without disturbing the occupants.

105 Timber has a slow charring rate of between 15 – 25mm per half hour (depending on species) therefore structural integrity remains stable for longer and is more predictable.

106 Masonry or steel conduct heat more readily resulting in cracking/spalling or twisting which can quickly undermine the safety of the entire structure.

107 Both external cladding and internal walling can be further protected.

108 Both external cladding and internal walling can be further protected from surface spread of flame. External cladding is treated off-site with a pressure impregnation system to achieve ½ hour or 1 hour retardation

109 Both external cladding and internal walling can be further protected from surface spread of flame. External cladding is treated off-site with a pressure impregnation system to achieve ½ hour or 1 hour retardation Internal walls can be sprayed during the construction process typically Nullifire and be certified for Class O resistance

110 Timber has a slow charring rate of 15 – 25mm per half hour (depending on species) therefore on solid timber builds such as MPL structural integrity remains stable for longer and is more predictable in a fire. True or False True False

111 Are You Sure? Timber has a slow charring rate of 15 – 25mm per half hour (depending on species) therefore on solid timber builds such as MPL structural integrity remains stable for longer that steel/masonry and is more predictable in a fire. Try again?

112 Correct - Timber has a slow charring rate of 15 – 25mm per half hour (depending on species) therefore on solid timber builds such as MPL structural integrity remains stable for longer that masonry/steel and is more predictable in a fire.

113 MPL buildings have been recorded with air tightness as low as 3.24m ³ /hr at 50Pa and can achieve lower.

114 This is a substantial improvement on building Regulations requirement of 10m ³ /hr at 50Pa

115 Industry standard for site waste is 0.021 tonnes per square meter of build

116 Cabinco have brought this down to 0.0033 tonnes of waste to landfill per square meter of build and current projects are anticipating 0.0002 tonnes per square metre of build.

117 Industry standard for site waste is 0.021 ton per square meter of build Cabinco have brought this down to 0.0033 tonnes of waste to landfill per square meter of build. We are working towards reducing this further as we develop our SWMPs and current projects are anticipating only 0.0002 tonnes to landfill per square metre of build.

118 MPL is a method of off-site construction which is fixed together on-site. This makes building times more rapid.

119 Removal of wet trades further reduces weather delays and improves construction times.

120 MPL is a method of off-site construction which is fixed together on-site. This makes building times more rapid. Removal of wet trades further reduces weather delays and improves construction times further. Eg: 120m² building completed in just 23 days (complete structural shell) 734m² building completed (including all foundations) in just 20 weeks.
