Under the Microscope in Manchester

Under the Microscope in Manchester easi-edge

Following a recent appearance in the New Steel Construction magazine we are pleased to announce our involvement in a new cancer research centre in Manchester.

Currently being constructed with a steel frame, the new three storey research centre has been designed to accommodate both research laboratories and office space.

To ensure the site operatives are protected against falls from height whilst the build progresses, we have supplied over 1,200 linear metres of edge protection to this worthwhile project.

Although predominantly constructed using a structural steel frame, there are elements within the building design which utilise a concrete frame. Our experienced team were able to offer solutions that would suit both frame types whilst taking into consideration metal decking, pre-cast floors and a 12 degree sloping façade to the front of the building.

Working closely with the main contractor, steelwork contractor and liaising with various subcontractors, phased deliveries were agreed to accommodate the build schedule and to fit in with the steelwork contractors just in time method for steel deliveries which was required due to the compact nature of the site.
