Best Brand New Product at Housebuilder Product Awards

Ultrapanel, the precision engineered ‘room in the roof’ system from Ultrapanel Building Technologies, has won Best Brand New Product at the esteemed Housebuilder Product Awards.

Launched in January 2021, the Ultrapanel system has been created to meet the demands of volume housebuilders by accelerating the build process and removing the need for cranes. The Ultrapanel ‘room in the roof’ and spandrel wall system is BBA approved and NHBC Accepts to ensure verified fire, weathertightness, thermal, and structural performance every time. Tried and tested by one of the UK’s most prominent housebuilders, the groundbreaking system increases return on investment by reducing build times and increasing saleable residential space by up to 60%.

Commenting about the win, Ultrapanel Building Technologies Design and Development Director, Andrew Thomson, said: “We are absolutely delighted that the benefits of the Ultrapanel ‘room in the roof’ system have been recognised at these prestigious awards. The system has been in development for several years and we have worked closely with one of the UK’s leading volume housebuilders to ensure it perfectly meets the demands of any busy site. As part of the Ultraframe group of companies, which invented the offsite manufacturing of bespoke roofs with millimetre precision some 35 years ago, this exciting new system is steeped in many years of experience.”

Precision engineered offsite, and available on a lead time of just two weeks, the Ultrapanel system is delivered precisely when you need it to accelerate your build processes. It arrives on site on pallets as a complete ‘room in the roof’ kit of parts, including all components and fixings at a pre-agreed price, and delivers predictable performance every time.

The system offers both a ‘room in the roof’ and gable and party wall spandrel solution and can be fitted by a team of three, using only a telehandler in just one day. Specialist skills are not required for those installing the intuitive system.

The Housebuilder Product Awards are supported by HBF and NHBC, with judges from a range of organisations including the CPA, HBF, NHBC and leading housebuilders. The Ultrapanel system will now become a finalist in the Product of the Year category at the prestigious Housebuilder Awards later in 2021.
