Howland Street, London, W1T 4EU
Temporary support steel to enable the construction of the new basement section of the new building on the corner of Howland Street and Charlotte Street for University College London (UCL).
We designed, supplied and installed the temporary steelwork, CHS props and UB walers. The original scheme was designed as a propriety system, we value engineered the project and our design used steelwork props and walers in preference to the original scheme. This resulted in a fixed price and a considerable cost saving for the client.
The steelwork was delivered and erected by us, in three phases to suit the excavation sequence and progress.
After completion of the necessary main contractors work, we removed the temporary steelwork and as part of our “buy back” initiative we credited the main contractor for the steelwork removed.
