Riser Floors on Bromley High Street
Undergoing some serious regeneration, Bromley High Street in East London has several building projects underway at the moment with new, affordable flats and houses springing up everywhere.
Thomas Sinden was appointed by Poplar HARCA as their contractor to deliver one such project, building 13 new homes, including a large family dwelling in a single residential block.
The infill site at 70-76 Bromley High Street, E3 was underused, but will now provide 3 affordable/social rented units and 10 intermediate houses, as well as a private amenity space and a large communal garden.
The architect specified GRP Riser Flooring and Thomas Sinden selected Step on Safety to supply the ten risers required over five floors. They were fabricated by Step on Safety staff at the workshop in Brantham and subsequently installed by the Thomas Sinden site teams. We find that, on fast moving projects where time and space are critical, clients prefer to have fabrications supplied in one delivery so they are available as and when needed rather than co-ordinating multiple site teams. It offers a cost saving too.
We are finding that GRP solutions are being chosen by the architects at the very beginning of a project far more frequently, rather than it being left to the preference of the contracted builder. Whether panels and profiles are being cut to fit on or offsite, the benefits over steel alternatives – such as weight, strength, ease of cutting and longevity – are now widely recognised.
