New heights, new residents & new awards for Keybridge

As we enter summer, work on site is picking up pace. The Keybridge Lofts tower is taking shape, homes across the development are welcoming their new residents, and the development was recently recognized at the prestigious National Site Awards from the Considerate Constructors Scheme. Read more below.

 

 

Construction Update

We’re continuing to make great progress across the site here at Keybridge. All main demolition works have now been completed, with minor demolition still ongoing at basement level.

The reinforced concrete frame that the 37-storey Keybridge Lofts tower will be built around is now up to 27th storey level, with the concrete core at 28th-29th stories. The steel frame for the building’s part-terracotta façade is now up to level 14-15.

Inside Block A, partition walling is being built to level 14, with plastering complete to level 11. Pipework and cables are being installed to level 13.

Homes across a number of completed Keybridge buildings are welcoming more new residents every week, including 89 across Blocks B1 and B2, 93 across the two Keybridge Gardens buildings and 13 in Block D (where all apartments have now been handed over to our partners FABRICA by A2Dominion). Block F’s 97 apartments across levels 2-22 were also handed over to A2Dominion at the end of March.

We’ve been able to remove three Tower Cranes from site and have installed a new tower crane to Block A. Work to the basement-level residents’ carpark is currently on schedule, with mechanical and electrical work underway and completion expected in September.

 

CCS National Site Awards Win

We’re pleased to announce that we recently took home a Bronze medal at the 2019 National Site Awards. The award recognises our ongoing commitment to challenging the perception of what it means to work in construction, and we were one of only 764 winners from over 6500 eligible sites registered with the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS).

CCS Chief Executive, Edward Hardy said: “Each award-winning site should be extremely proud of receiving this prestigious industry accolade. We work with sites to push the

boundaries of what is achievable and this year’s accomplishments by sites have certainly not disappointed”.

 

The Future of Wyvil School

30 year three pupils, aged 7-8, recently donned hard hats and high-vis jackets for a behind-the-scenes look at the recently laid foundations for the school’s extension. This practical, fun visit included a series of talks and demonstrations designed to teach the children how a construction site works and the importance of staying safe on site.

Under the close supervision of Senior Project Manager Nyron Higgins, the children were even able to stand on the new foundations. Nyron says “These site visits continue to strengthen our relationship with the local community. We also see them as an opportunity to inspire the future generation, and a great way to showcase the wide range of career options available to young people within the industry”.
