Construction Overview

All sites were structural steel frame buildings with traditional concrete ground floor slab and foundations with trench fill where required. The envelopes were SFS internal framing with a combination of brick, rendered block and timber cladding. A number of the sites incorporated significant level differences which involved efficient earthworks designs to ensure the requirement of single storey level buildings.
