Redbridge Project, which consisted of Downshall Primary School, Barley Lane Primary School and Cadwell Primary School.
Survey; Specification; Design; Manufacture; Delivery; Installation
The school’s brief was to supply and install internal and external staircases to access the 1st floor level. In addition to the obvious safety issues, the challenge was to create staircases that had a contemporary / modern feel yet were practical and robust enough to withstand day to day use.
Plans, costs and CAD drawings were submitted and given the seal of approval.
HBE Services created general arrangement drawings for approval from client.
Following approval, fabrication drawings were created from the approved CAD layouts and fabrication was then undertaken at the factory.
All component parts were ether galvanised and or painted and delivered to site.
The main contractor builder was commissioned to construct concrete foundations that would level and support the final structure to an exact specification. Due to the remote location of the staircase, HBE Services were unable to get any lifting equipment to the area. This meant we had to work closely with the main contractor to establish a safe system of work. However this was overcome and the structure successfully installed.
The entire project took nearly 5 weeks to complete due to its complexity. The school were very happy with the solution and is talking to HBE Services about a number of other projects.
