  • ABP Canopy Extension- JemBuild
    Shed 5 Canopy Extension, King George Dock, Hull

    The design and construct of a new 80m x 20m canopy extension to the existing shed in line with a previous extension.

    This fast track project had to be carried out with minimum disturbance to the clients tenant who operate a very busy timber distribution company within the core of this busy dock.  Continued access of the existing shed was required throughout the full duration of the works.

    The extension consisted of a twin span steel portal frame (maximising floor space for timber storage), cladded to the roof and side walls, with an open frontage. The steelwork was erected on reinforced concrete pad foundations which were constructed on precast concrete piles.

    New electrical lighting and alterations to existing electrical services was required including removal of a high mast lighting column and new lightning protection was also installed.

    A perimeter concrete dwarf wall and associated surface water drainage and external block paved and concrete reinstatement completed the project.

    The project was completed on time and on budget despite encountering major unknown underground obstructions at the foundation stage which delayed piling and foundation works.

Internally cable trenches were fitted with lightweight GRP flooring panels. Galvanised stairs and concrete landings where constructed externally to provide access to the doors.

     Externally works included the construction of  reinforced concrete transformer pens with 4m high blast walls with palisade fencing completing the enclosures.

    External ducting with cable turning pits, deep surface water drainage, palisade fencing, kerbing macadam, stone and gravel areas completed the works.

  • Healing School - Jembuild

    The project comprises of a 2700m2 new-build element providing eighteen academic classrooms, a large school library, special educational needs facilities and various staff and welfare amenities. External works including a large colonnade extension to the gym building, external shelters, and extensive landscaping were also incorporated as a part of a separate full-plans application.

    A sustainable construction was achieved with the compilation of a dynamic thermal model which successfully proved a naturally ventilated building could be achieved within the scope of the new design by utilising solar control glass, brise soleil and a bespoke dual opening window system throughout the building. Additionally Solar Photovoltaic panels were incorporated within the expansive roof structure providing energy capable of supplying the new build.

    This striking scheme has been well received by the Academy Staff, Board of Governors and more importantly the pupils.
