From 2015, we completed three old garage site in Milton Keynes. They consisted of 13 bungalow specially design for disabled access. The key element was the installation on site. The design and manufacture of the product was important, but the speed of installation was priority.
Each site was among established estates, with small avenues and tight access. We had to be able to deliver the product and install the units with the minimum of fuss. We had to keep the neighbours happy from noise outside established working hours and keep local school runs from being blocked from cranes and artics. We worked closely with the main contractor to make sure we got this 100% right.
With the established problems of the access to site, we had to agree to a 3 day programme for each house. We managed to reduce this to 2 days per house. With 4 houses on two sites and 5 units on the last, we saved nearly 30% on the timeline set which helped keep the neighbours and council very happy.
We the benefits of our closed panel system and the design and manufacture management off site. We didn’t lose any quality during the quick builds.
