New Wimbledon church rises with steel

Posted on by in Weekly News

Approximately 320t of structural steelwork is being erected to create a new congregational facility in Wimbledon for a community-led Anglican church.

The new Dundonald Church, will replace an older facility which was deemed to be out-dated and too small for the church’s requirements, and was demolished during the initial phase of the construction works.

Working on behalf of main contractor Curo Construction, TSI Structures is fabricating, supplying and erecting the steelwork.

The project includes a main hall, meeting rooms and a youth club games area, as well as three upper floors containing 18 apartments, which will fund the development.

The project is being developed in partnership with Adoni Developments, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Green Pastures CBS, a UK-wide Homelessness social enterprise. The apartments will all be for private sale, but the proceeds will then be used by Green Pastures in its help the homeless projects.

“It’s a brilliant scheme for a fantastic client, but also challenging as the site is very tight, which means it is ideally suited to steel construction for its programme benefits,” says Curo Construction Senior Project Manager Jonathan O’Neill. “As we have limited space, materials storage and distribution is key. Upon delivery, steel sections are lifted into position via our temporary pit lane, this accelerates production and reduces double handling.”

The Dundonald Church is due to be complete by Spring 2021.
