Nuspan is a high performance, precast, insulated flooring system for application in the construction of suspended ground floors in new build housing and small scale commercial buildings. With a saving of up to five times the amount of onsite labour, it’s no wonder Nuspan insulated precast concrete units (IPCU) have become a nationwide leading Modern Method of Construction.

It is manufactured in precision made steel moulds to stringent quality standards. The composite unit comprises structural grade reinforced concrete bonded to high performance expanded polystyrene (EPS).

Nuspan was developed to meet the next generation of building regulations and can achieve U-Values as low as 0.10 W/m2K depending on the perimeter/area ratio and insulating material chosen. This allows the building designer greater flexibility when specifying other elements of the building in order to achieve the required Target Emissions Rating (TER) or to achieve highly energy efficient buildings.

Nuspan is the ideal solution for suspended ground floors in house building, particularly where customers are seeking a thermally efficient method of construction. At the same time, due to the offsite manufacturing process, Nuspan provides fast onsite construction, usually completing a standard plot within an hour, providing a safe working platform for the follow on trades to get on site as quickly as possible.

Nuspan Insulated Precast Flooring - Masonry
Nuspan Insulated Precast Flooring - Timber Frame

    Masonry construction

    In standard applications our pre-cast concrete floor unit Is laid with 100mm bearing on to the substructure below. As the floor unit Is pre-cast not pre-stressed there is no need for a full screed to coursing, just a levelling compound between 1st and second fix, taking the wet trade off the critical construction path. Here, most of our clients then achieve further savings taking out DPM, perimeter strip and screed as well as removing the shuttering/coursing layer of brick over traditional systems.

    Timber Frame construction

    Timber frame applications work similar to that of masonry. The timber sole plate can be fixed directly to the top of the Nuspan unit offering excellent embedment for fixings.

    • The combination of time and cost savings coupled with the clean operation and reduced labour and manual handling elements of the system have led to Nuspan being the flooring product of choice for First Wessex Homes on all future projects.

    • Nuspan were very helpful during design stage and managed the installation to a high standard. Upon completion we calculated we had saved two weeks on programme, circa 20% on our screeding package due to the omission of insulation from their order, and a ground floor slab finished to an impressive standard.
