Caunton detailed, fabricated, delivered and erected 1,000 tonnes of steel for this Multi-Storey Residential development in Hove near Brighton. In addition we organised the supply and installation of stainless steel lintel angles to the elevations to provide support to the external brickwork cladding.
Due to overall height restrictions the floors were constructed of UC section beams, some even having shelf angles, to keep floor depths to a minimum. Lateral stability of the structure was provided by insitu concrete stair cores. The structure was completed within the specified construction periods which were adjusted to the construction of the cores by the main contractor.
Due to restrictions on the available working area, detailed planning of all operation's was carried out in conjunction with Alfred McAlpine Homes, to ensure practical access for all elements of the erection.
