ABOUT THE PROJECT
Castle Eaton Ltd appointed SpanWright UK to supply and fit at first floor level to this house extension in Godalming, Surrey. The project, on a mature site accessed from the private residential Pickhurst Road, Chiddingfold, demanded a quick turnaround for construction. SpanWright UK specified 200mm prestressed flooring as the most suitable product to accommodate engineering and architectural construction requirements.
Castle Eaton placed the order for Hazelbridge House in the 1st week of May and required delivery and fitting for end of that month. SpanWright UK’s technical department working with Client appointed Engineer and Architect worked proactively to conclude SpanWright construction layout drawings for approval. The layout reflected that the units were designed to take account of roof loadings over and above standard load bearing requirements. Drawing approval from client engineering was confirmed for the following week. Prestressed flooring was manufactured for delivery as requested by client. The consignment was delivered and fitted in one day using air mattress system for fall arrest around trailer for safe offloading and fitting with on site craneage.
