12 Bay Triple Storey Containex Building - Completed August 2015
The challenge on this project was providing enough facilities to cover the project in a space not only small but difficult to access. Triple storey was the obvious answer, but the difficulty remained getting the building into position.
The building itself provided welfare facilities for 50 people on the ground, with accompanying drying room space on the floor above. The top floor has space for a 15 strong site management team including welfare facilities for staff, with a meeting room below due to the lack of space.
We landed the building in late July using an 80T mobile crane supplied by one of our most trusted suppliers. Access was extremely tight and required a lot of forward planning. We organised a stand down area just outside Cambridge where our HGVs could run the units to. From there, we utilised our 7.5T Road Runner flatbed to take the units in one at a time to the crane that was in position waiting.
Completed over a 2 day period and finished on site in a further 7, this project really embodied a real challenge!
