University of Essex
This project is the Design and Build construction of a 3-storey modular Teaching Centre for the University of Essex in Colchester. This project saw the construction of new teaching facilities on the campus of the University.
The building, which is approximately 2000m² contains 20 classrooms, fully fitted WCs on each of the three floors, leisure facilities and circulation space for the students. Western completed the groundworks at the site as well as supplying all internal fixtures and fittings which were manufactured in-house by Western.
This three storey Design and Build project for the University of Essex, used a steel-frame modular construction technique. 72no. modular units were manufactured off-site at Western’s Mountjoy Road plant before transportation to the site for installation on-site by our expert team of installers.
While the manufacturing process of the modular units was underway, site works were on-going to prepare the site, ready for the delivery and installation of the units. This form of construction allows for a greatly reduced programme in comparison with traditional on-site construction methods.
Western have first-class facilities available at our purpose built Mountjoy Road Plant, with over 10,000m² of purpose built manufacturing space. Western completed the groundworks at the site as well as supplying all internal fixtures and fittings which were manufactured inhouse by Western.
