Kingston University project construction techniques in focus

PCE was recently pleased to show Dr David Hancock, Construction Director at the Cabinet Office and Andrew Minson Executive Director of the Mineral Products Association, around the Kingston University Project to demonstrate excellence in delivering Offsite Hybrid structural concrete solutions.

Using their in house design capabilities, PCE has applied state of the art 3D Modelling techniques to ensure that during the structural design process all of the offsite prefabricated precast concrete units are accurately detailed to achieve the desired minimisation of joint details and ease of manufacture to ensure safe and rapid construction.
