St Mary’s Church of England Academy17/04/2018
- The modular units provide 809m2 of accommodation space spread over 9 apartments over 3 floors
- The roof terraces for the top floor apartments give 100m2 of external space and formed part of the first floor modules. Bolt on balconies were also included for additional external space.
- Additional green roof area of 20m2 was built into the first floor module roof.
- The Bin and Bike stores include factory fitted concrete floors.
- The modular design was completed from the original design drawings (intended for traditional construction) by our in house team of designers using both traditional 2D CAD and BIM Level 2 compliant Revit Architecture.
- Due to the large size of the production facility each floor was laid out complete thus maximising factory content.
- In the factory, the workforce can work simultaneously on all floors.
- High levels of factory finishing works – Quality built In
- 90% of Works completed in factory conditions.
- One of the unique features of Reds10’s premises is the size of the facility. With over 50,000 square feet of clear span space in each of our two production facilities modules can be loaded utilizing cranes. This allows very large modules (up to 18m long, 5m wide and 4.2m tall) to be loaded with minimal stress, limiting the potential for damage to modules in transit.
- For Surrey Apartment Complex the largest modules were 15m long and weighed in excess of 20 tonnes.
- As with most residential infill projects the site was very constrained and required careful planning, co-ordination and timing to ensure minimum disruption to residents and the users of local facilities.
- More than half of the transport loads were escorted in to the site due to their size.
- Installation of the modules took place using a 350 tonne crane with Super Lift and 140 tonnes of ballast
- The 21 modules were installed in 4 days
The 21 modules were installed in just four days and provide 809m2 of accommodation space, spread over nine apartments, and three floors
