College redevelopment relies on steel framing

Posted on by in News

The £50M redevelopment programme at Canterbury College has made extensive use of Metsec’s site fixed Steel Framing System (SFS) for infill walling during construction of the external envelope.

Specialist contractor Chartway used a total of 110t of 150mm SFS sections, typically secured at 600mm centres, for the new steel framed building’s infill walling.

The recently completed project combines an arts and media centre, food hall and a new block housing a learning resources centre, refectory, conference rooms and travel and tourism support areas.

The college facilities are laid out in a distinctive street-like plan, with the travel shop and restaurant areas open to the public as well as to staff and students.

Chartway’s Site Manager Steve Whitewood, said: “We have worked with Metsec for many years, and we know we can depend on them for a quick response and a fast turnaround. We know we can rely on delivery dates being met, which is critically important on a project of this size.
