Delivering a complete solution for schools

Posted on by in News

Metsec framing systemMetsec is delivering the steel framing systems for a Building Schools for the Future programme being undertaken by main contractor Balfour Beatty.

The projects, in the Stoke-on-Trent and Derby areas, comprise a mixture of designs, with a total value of £145M.

From the early days of the  scheme, Metsec said it was working with structural engineers, architects and structural steel contractors to ensure a quick and speedy programme. Metsec’s designers attended meetings and workshops aimed at developing design solutions which would streamline the construction process to maximise efficiency and, where possible, make cost savings.

Colin Harper, Project Director at Balfour Beatty Construction, said, “As with any project, it is vital to assure accuracy, risk reduction and cost control as well as delivering value for money for the client. Getting Metsec involved at the earliest stages of conceptualisation made them a key part of the design team and has already paid dividends in these crucial areas.”
