An existing 1990’s modular classroom block containing 3 classrooms and toilets located within a tarmac play area was removed and replaced within a difficult and inconvenient play area. External works include adjustments to the tarmac areas, the internal courtyard accommodating the steel frame around the classrooms and additional surfacing works. The school and play areas remain open and functional throughout the contract.
The time-lapse video shows 3 new classrooms being installed at first floor level in only one day over the existing staff room on a new steel frame. This new superior classroom provision has access from the existing first floor corridor via a newly constructed opening.
The state of the art Volumetric unit classroom and toilet provision were fully designed from concept to fabrication by Hoca Practice as a totally integrated and coordinated design process.
The 3 classrooms totalled circa 260 sqm, designed in 6 Volumetric Units and assembled on site in just one day.
Modular Airspace Systems carried out the off-site construction in a matter of weeks with the final installation completed successfully within 8 hours.www.modularairspacesystems.co.uk
The project consists of the design, supply, construction and installation of a single span 2.5m wide 52 metre Warren Truss Bridge pedestrian/cycleway bridge with associated footpaths and lighting providing access to the Altira business park in Herne Bay spanning the North Kent Coast Railway line along the East side of the existing road bridge.
NuSteel Structures carried out the bridge design and off site construction with Walker Construction (UK) Ltd carrying out the installation and all associated works. The civil engineering design package was carried out by Walker Construction (UK) Ltd’s in-house design division, WSS Construction Consultants.
Works included concrete piling, foundations, abutments, surface water drainage, existing service diversions, lighting, fencing, associated landscaping and the construction of adjoining footpaths alongside the east of Margate Road to connect to the boulevard within Altira park. Additional temporary works consisted of the design and construction of crane pads, concrete abutments and bearing shelves.
Construction commenced on the 25th of September 2015 with an expected overall completion on 15th April 2016.
