Block A Update
All concrete walls (where applicable) have been saw cut/removed, thus allowing remedial work to commence. All mini-piling works have been completed, inclusive of pile caps/re-instating drainage runs, with a view of slab reinstatement all in line with the remediation strategy.
Block B Update
We have removed all of the previously-installed formwork and re-bar to the Block B podium slab. Works have commenced locally to begin saw cutting the ground floor slab (thus enabling drainage diversions/piling) and localised mini-piling has been concluded.
Block C Update
Our main contractor, FK Group, has engaged Creagh Concrete to complete both the removal and reinstatement works to the core of Block C. Works have been concluded in removing the impacted elements of the Core and the install of the replacement new concrete elements to the core will be finished by the end of December.
During Q2 2020, we encountered an issue within the structural design of our Uptown, Riverside development. Following assessment, we were advised by our Structural Engineer that remedial works involving demolition works to the concrete core were required. Specialist equipment was delivered to site during the August bank holiday weekend so that it could be safely and securely stored ahead of any potential demolition work. We worked closely with Salford City Council keeping them fully informed of all activity taking place on site, and have consulted with the representatives of the local residents committee. Letters were hand delivered to people’s homes informing them of our plans and we provided contact details for key staff members, including our chairman, so that local residents could raise any concerns with us directly. Safety is always the first and foremost consideration for us here at PAG, so Demolition exclusion zones and appropriate control measures were put in place prior to the works commencing. The neighbouring Trinity Way was closed during the two days of these works as an additional precaution.
We are pleased to say that our team of experts have concluded a revised design that will allow us to resolve the situation and press on with our works on site. We have been able to draw on our extensive network and benefit from experts in their field. Our teams have worked tirelessly to rectify this issue with the best possible outcome. We erred on the side of caution throughout, taking actions that went above and beyond what was required in order to resolve the issue as safely and efficiently as possible.
Additionally, construction of the individual apartment modules continued off-site throughout the process, lessening the impact on the construction programme as far as possible.
The development, although in its early stages has already been shortlisted for Best Use of Timber Technology in The Offsite Construction Awards 2020. We look forward to announcing further awards for this development next year, as Uptown, Riverside nears completion and is recognised for its sustainable qualities and
smart home system.
Work on site has progressed well over the past three months, and concrete frame works are now complete to Element. This has allowed us to install the concrete cores and begin the installation of the modules in this building. Construction of each floor takes approximately three days, meaning that reaching the full 10-storey height of Element can be achieved over a six-week time frame. Concrete frame works are ongoing at Enigma, and we look forward to installing the concrete cores and modules to that building in the near future. Furthermore, Graphene is now also out of the ground and rising fast.
