PROJECT DETAILS

An 8 storey mixed used development in the centre of Orpington, comprising two levels of underground car parking and a Tesco Extra store with three levels of residential apartments above.


Kelly Formwork Uk Ltd were employed as a Labour only Sub-Contractor on this project for M R Stephenson Ltd. The Project involved the construction of an RC Frame combined with a steel frame, insitu slabs and radial car park ramps.

Construction methods consisted of an innovative Co-biax system using recycled plastic spheres which are cast into the slab as void-formers, providing savings on weight and materials resulting in both environmental and structural advantages.
