Kirkstall Road is a new development of PRS (Private Rental Sector) acccomodation incorporarting stylish 1,2 & 3 bedroom apartments close to Leeds City Centre. This area of the city is rapidly changing and considering its close proximity to the city centre, it is becoming a very popular area of Leeds.
Howard Civil Engineering were employed by our new client, Hollycroft Construction to deliver the RC Frame
Due to obstructions in the ground, the piling and groundworks (undertaken by others) took longer than initially envisaged and we worked with our client to establish a delivery that maintained the main contract programme.
Our openness and flexibility around programme and delivery was a key factor with our client deciding to progress with HCE.
Due to the site constraints, we employed a ‘just in time’ delivery strategy to best manage the limited space onsite and overcome the challenging site logistics. Furthermore, with our head office and plant yard just over 3 miles away we were able to use this valuable off site space for prefabricating steel and constructing formwork/falsework.
