Project Management

Steel Building Construction, Planning, Safety & Project Management

Naturally enough a major part of the decision making process when considering the purchase of a new facility surrounds the quality, safety and timeliness of the whole project management element.

From our centrally located, purposed designed, offices and warehouse facilities we have brought together our design and management skills with a number of strategically located construction teams who are trained and competent in the construction of our steel buildings and mezzanine flooring systems.

They all carry significant levels of third party liability insurance and make safety a priority whilst on your site.

A number of our teams have undergone specific training for major blue chip and utility providers including London Underground and BAA so you can be sure of the very highest working standards.

We have also undertaken work overseas and can arrange building, mezzanine flooring and racking delivery and construction in mainland Europe and further afield if required.

Consequently we offer teams fully trained in the assembly and installation of our steel buildings, mezzanine floors and racking and storage systems.

Initial site conditions with asbestos roof and badly corroded steel building and cladding. 3CB undertook all the planning for this enormous and prestigious steel building project. The building shown here was far too small for our Customer who required additional floor area and height.

As part of a notifiable project under CDM regulations the site was cordoned off and the necessary paperwork lodged with the HSE.

With the main hot rolled steel frames in place the secondary, or cold rolled steel sections (sheeting rails and purlins) were fitted With the main hot rolled steel frames in place the secondary, or cold rolled steel sections (sheeting rails and purlins) were fitted.

Safety netting and edge protection together with staircases were then fitted prior to installing the insulated roof and walls sheets (or cladding) Safety netting and edge protection together with staircases were then fitted prior to installing the insulated roof and walls sheets (or cladding).
Once the cladding was fixed the internal floors were poured, in this case using a very sophisticated laser system required for the high racking system later to be installed. Notice also the use of coloured concrete for the floor which gives a long lasting, integral, colour rather than an applied paint. This floor (27m x 48m) was laid in just one day and enabled the project to be completed to very tight deadlines Once the cladding was fixed the internal floors were poured, in this case using a very sophisticated laser system required for the high racking system later to be installed.
