Apartments, Hopes Carr, Stockport, 2013
A challenging project of forty four apartments, situated very close to the centre of Stockport, presenting logistical difficulties with access and local traffic. The timber frame structure comprising five stories of timber frame coming of a steel ground floor podium, divided into three inter-locking buildings was successfully handed over to the principal contractor in twelve weeks. In order to protect the construction team and the building (reduce risk) from potential fire during the construction period we compartmentalized areas of the building with fire walls and floors in line with the site specific fire report recommendations. Working closely with the principal contractor on a day to day basis they were able to progress with the follow on trades, floor to floor as we moved up through the building, enabling them to meet targets and complete a large scale project on time.
