PCE Ltd is pleased to have been awarded a contract by Galliford Try to design, manufacture, and construct a HybriDfMA office building frame using Offsite manufactured structural steel and precast concrete components together with insitu reinforced concrete.
Building C of the central Bristol Assembly development is a 14-storey tower adjacent to the River Avon for property developer Bell Hammer working with insurer, AXA. The architect is AHMM, with consulting engineers ARUP. The HybriDfMA framed building will provide 92,000 sq.ft. of office space utilising PCE’s experience of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC), Offsite engineering and providing as much Offsite construction as possible in a very busy city centre location. Building C is the second and tallest of three units to be built of a phased construction programme. The Assembly development will include a new public area, with connections through the site and a new floating pontoon. The development will create a new destination for Bristol and a new type of people-friendly workspace. The plan draws from the character and context of the site, integrating it into the city.
PCE’s Operations Director Karl Hubbard commented:
“We are extremely excited to showcase our HybriDfMA Frames Systems approach on this significant Bristol development project, working with Galliford Try to deliver a high quality futuristic office building.”
