Horizons Concrete Frame Poole

Contract : St Josephs – Horizons
Client : McCarthy & Stone
Concrete Superstructure Value : 1.4 Million

Woodmace Concrete Structures has recently completed the landmark Horizons concrete frame in Poole for McCarthy & Stone Developments.

Seven storey multi deck concrete frame. Slender flat slab construction with large span, two way spanning slabs.

Combined groundworks and concrete frame package enabled Woodmace Concrete Structures to attend site earlier, this provided a mechanism for Woodmace to act as principle contractor until sufficient frame had been completed for the Main Contractor to commence below. This provided a cost and programme saving enabling Woodmace Concrete Structures to complete the frame in 22 weeks.

Utilizing internal soffit pan system with external table construction enabled the quick strike and relocation of formwork, maximising the use of formwork, thereby reducing the amount of equipment on-site. Installed Doka table lifting system (TLS) to provide support for distribution of formwork in the event of any crane downtime.
