AV Group is delighted to have been able to support client Canary Wharf in helping to build an amazing Garden of Tranquility for children’s hospice Demelza in Kent. The Gardens were officially opened by DJ Chris Evans, and his own young family on 1 July. (more…)
Canary Wharf Modular Building Project
These cabins were delivered from both Langley Mill and Essex depots and successfully installed on to a particularly restrictive site at Canary Wharf, London over two days without a hitch. Careful co-ordination, professionalism and an eye for detail were a necessity to making this work.
Our client, Byrne Brothers, are constructing the concrete core for another 30 storey office tower on the Wharf. The inter-linked units will provide welfare facilities for over 250 contractors during concrete core and initial steel framing phase of the works. Byrne were very impressed with both the quality of the units and the ease in which were installed.
We had two clients on this particular project : Byrne Bros. concrete core (AV Danzer also had units on hire to Byrne at the ‘Shard’ tallest tower in Europe project) and Canary Wharf Group PLC. This particular project is a new 20 storey, 500,000 sq ft tower in the heart of Canary Wharf, 25 Churchill Place.
The initial cabins were installed for Byrne Bros as a triple stack, end on end linked 32x10s for use as welfare facilities. Byrne Bros employed AV Danzer because we had the flexibility in our product to combine OpenSpace units with end-on-end linked cabins to fit within a very small footprint on site. No other supplier could provide this for them. Also we were able to turn around in less than 3 weeks from receipt of order. The units were installed using a 120 tonne crane.
Normally on projects such as this, located next to the docks, Canary Wharf Group provide their contractors with pre-existing site accommodation on a raft moored adjacent to the site. However, because the 2012 Olympics will be using the docks to moor yachts for the rich and famous, this was not a possible, hence their call to us for assistance.
Byrne Bro’s client Canary Wharf Group PLC were so impressed with our performance on the initial phase that they directly contracted us to supply additional units which we skated in to the basement.
