  • Project: 171 housing association homes and flats
  • Client: Prestoplan Ltd

The principal contractor, Highwood, required the Deanery project to be completed in 12 months. SC4’s experienced team of timber frame erectors and slinger/signallers has completed on time, and with some complex radius timber frame interior and exterior walls thrown in for good measure.

A total of 16,000 sqm of disproportionate collapse timber frame
including a mix of five/six-storey high structures and three/four
storey blocks were completed using a hired-in mobile crane from
SC4’s supplier Marsh Plant.
