40 Flats and Community Centre, Oxford

Our works comprised of the design and construction of 40 mixed sale and affordable housing units, sited above the ground floor, which housed a commercial unit and workshop for charity works, as well as a multi-functional Community Centre.

The building was constructed using a transfer slab solution to facilitate the Clients clear span requirement for the ground floor, this was formed by way of a steel structure and pre-cast floor slabs.

The flats aboveĀ  were created with a traditional masonry solution.

On this specific project we engaged as the principal contractor managing the design and construction activities and working closely with the Employers Agent, with regards to financial matters.

In particular, our team worked through an extensive process of Value Engineering to ensure that the contract sum came through under the budget constraints, imposed by the Client.
