The advantages of PCE Ltd’s offsite approach, utilising its own developed products and techniques, is once again leading the way in reducing town centre congestion and the number of people that would otherwise have been employed on site during the construction phase.
Over 24,000m² of the PCE developed prestressed concrete GT long span flooring units are being used to minimise on site construction times, reducing the depth of structure, number of erection lifts, and the amount of follow on trades as there is no insitu structural topping required and the units arrive to site on a just in time basis with a factory applied anti slip finish.
Offsite production of the precast units will enable PCE to meet the 40 week onsite programme which commenced at the end of last year. This is the third consecutive car park structure contract for PCE that has involved the construction of adjoining retail space. Once completed it will be a leading example of a next generation shopping and leisure destination.
