PCE Ltd has been awarded a contract by Galliford Try to design, manufacture, and construct a HybriDfMA office building frame using off-Site manufactured structural steel and precast concrete components together with in situ reinforced concrete.
With modern methods of construction at the forefront of planning for Assembly C, the project team at PCE considered every avenue where they had planned tasks that were traditionally completed on-site and looked to amalgamate these into an offsite manufacturing solution.
Building C of the central Bristol Assembly development is a 14-storey tower adjacent to the River Avon for property developer Bell Hammer.
The HybriDfMA framed building will provide 92,000 sq.ft. of office space utilizing PCE’s experience of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC), Offsite engineering, and providing as much Offsite construction as possible in a very busy city center location.
Building C is the second and tallest of three units to be built in a phased construction program. The Assembly development will include a new public area, with connections through the site and a new floating pontoon.
The development will create a new destination for Bristol and a new type of people-friendly workspace. The plan draws from the character and context of the site, integrating it into the city.
