Project Description

Kingston University Town House

Safety

PCE’s Total Safety Management approach ensured that, from initiation of Design to completion of the 6 storey, 10,000m² structure, all potential Health and Safety issues were considered and eliminated.

Quality

With extensive areas of the building’s internal and external concrete finishes and jointing between components being visible, component manufacture and construction procedures were controlled to the highest quality.

Speed

Construction completed in just over 40 weeks by PCE’s highly trained multi skilled workforce. Over 2,150 offsite manufactured structural components arrived at site on a digitally managed logistics ‘just in time’ basis.

Value

PCE’s HybriDfMA Bespoke System solution enabled an architecturally complex structure and facade to be economically achieved by an Offsite and Modern Methods of Construction approach.
