Standardisation maximised design and cost efficiencies
At Kepier we used standardised components and design details from our Education Solutions Manual (ESM). These tried and tested solutions ensure best value and quality. Across the batch we utilised standardised precast ground beams, reducing the programme by 50%, whilst delivery the same great performance.
The scheme was also used to research precast lift construction in buildings with two to three storeys. The costs were very similar, but the benefits to programme of using precast are significant – the shaft is erected in one day rather than several weeks, with no scaffolding risks.
