The Project

This project to create 482 homes consisted of two tower blocks’ an eight-storey podium, two eight-storey wing buildings. Our main works consisted of providing access to all external facades of the three eight-storey buildings to facilitate all façade trades.

The high-level blocks employed an innovative new method of construction using a “Jump Factory” built around each tower to create an indoor construction site spanning 6 floors.    This meant that there was no initial requirement for scaffolding to these towers, however, we were eventually required to climb these 100M buildings with scaffold towers as hoist run off platforms to each floor level.

As the Jump factory overhung the building’s floor plate by some distance, exclusion zones were put in place which posed a great challenge in coordination and planning complete within programme.
