Our client J A Ball had been contracted to build a six- storey apartment building to provide 40 luxury two-bedroom properties for the private rental sector (PRS) market.
We were briefed to design and manufacture a five-storey pre-insulated, light gauge steel superstructure which could be erected over a transfer platform, with undercroft ground floor parking.
The main challenges for this project were its location and the phasing of the build: We were faced with working on a tight, city centre site where access and lay down areas were heavily restricted. And, the building's construction was split into two phases, which meant we needed to create a bespoke plan for the installation of our steel frame.
We overcame both of these challenges to enable the build to progress on programme.
Working on sites with restricted access is something we regularly experience and the nature of our offsite system means we can deliver to site as needed, require little or no storage space and can be easily scheduled to fit in with other trades.
Our planning and approach to the project worked so well that we actually completed our build programme ahead of schedule - in just nine weeks instead of the proposed 14.
"Once again, the Fusion team worked efficiently, managed the challenges thrown at them and completed ahead of schedule." Adam Ball, Director, J A Ball Ltd
