Swann Deliver Bespoke Structural Steelwork Package for Multi Purpose Block in Cambridge

Swann Engineering Group is proud to have delivered a bespoke structural steelwork package for a community redevelopment initiative in Cambridge.

The brand-new residential and communal complex replaces a pre-existing block and now features eight modern one-bedroom flats, six two-bedroom maisonettes, dedicated retail spaces, and a community centre facility.

Our custom metalwork package for this project contained an array of tailored structural steelwork elements and included:

  • Integral Infrastructure Supports
  • External Terrace Railings
  • Internal Stairwell Railings
  • Balcony Framework and Balustrades

Our in-house detailing department designed the steelwork elements used throughout the development, which once approved by the client, were all fabricated at our manufacturing facility in Braintree, Essex.

Integral to the structural stability of the front block, we manufactured and installed Galvanized Podium Posts which are enclosed in brickwork and visible along the front of the development. These columns also support the integrated access walkway to the maisonettes above and are lined with 70m of galvanized and powder-coated steel railing.

Additional railings installed to the rear of the block integrate with privacy screens to enclose each balcony’s footprint.

The separate flat complex at the rear of the site features three single-stacked and one integrated steel-frame balconies, each flanked by privacy screens and finished with galvanized and powder-coated guard rail. This block also features 33m of external railing along the covered access walkway.

Our onsite team also installed over 60m of internal wall rail throughout the communal and emergency stairwells for both blocks.

Well done to all parties involved in delivering another successful structural and architectural steelwork project, which was successfully coordinated, managed and delivered on time to a happy client.
