Elliot House Exterior

Elliot House is a fine example of British Brutalist architecture. Unlike some examples of this divisive style (looking at you, UEA), Elliot House was built with some sympathy for its surroundings in mind. Its overhanging upper storey mirrors that of the late period Tudor house opposite. As part of the building’s conversion into luxury flats by Crownage Ltd, we were asked to install a new roof.


Scaffold Canopy

High Performance System

Modern Insulation
