Metcon was contracted to design, manufacture and construct 14 houses and 26 apartments in Coulsdon. Design was undertaken by GGA Engineering. The ground floor was designed and constructed using strip foundations, rising walls and block and beam flooring. Then Metcon designed, manufactured and constructed the houses first at the rear of the site working closely with the main contractor in scheduling the process of works.
Finally constructing the apartments in blocks of 3 moving closer to the front of the site as the first houses became complete for handover to the contractor. Metcon left one skilled erector on site at all times to iron out any issues with the follow on trades that never experienced steel frame construction before. This ensured a complete service to the main contractor on keeping to his schedule of works. It also ensured the Client was happy which is always important. Photo’s can be viewed in projects folder.
