Steel Frame Extension

Aylesford
Value – Circa £90k
Client – Polypipe
Date – September 2019
Duration – 8 Weeks

Polypipe appointed Bauvill to install a new steel frame extension to the main warehouse, this was fabricated off-site and installed to form a new space for crane lifting materials up and down to the top floor.

We created new concrete pads for the steel erection which involved some underground drainage diversions. The new steel frame was all clad and the roof linked into the existing warehouse guttering system.

The steel frame had to comply with strict building regulations, this meant that the entire frame had to be painted in intumescent to a 1 hour rating.
