Mansell Construction Services Ltd
The mill located in Manchester City Centre was being converted from it’s previous use into high specification studio apartments. We were asked to provide a structurally sound Height Safety Solutions for this unique, listed structure.
As a listed building nothing of its external appearance could be changed. Mansafe systems were chosen because of the inconspicuous way they could be hidden & fixed back to existing timber rafters, along all gutter areas that were required to be accessed for maintenance purpose.
Our strategy, as always with existing structures was to complete a full site survey. This included detailed photographs, plans drawings showing layouts of the Mansafe systems against rafter/roof/purlin configurations and a written report. All dimensions and beam sizes were added so that there could be no discrepancies in what we had envisaged as a solution and the completed works.
On award the job was initially passed to our in-house structural design department. We are unique in the industry as we have qualified Engineers who work in the company.
The contract was installed to specification and on time. The customer was impressed with our innovative professional approach and we were awarded the second part of the contract almost immediately after we had finished our initial contract.
We were pleased to have been of assistance on such a challenging project.
