Caunton are making great inroads into the residential sector –one where steel is winning an ever increasing market share.
Erection of Number Six, Paris Garden, just south of the Thames in Southwark, is well under way as the photograph shows.
These 9 and 13 storey blocks require nearly 500te of steelwork on a very tight inner city site. The building will house a ballet school as well as 162 student residences. The design of the steelwork and the connections is by Caunton on a design and build contract.
A good example of how the speed and flexibility of steel means that the urgent accommodation needs of our large number of students is being met efficiently and quickly.
