As Metframe is assembled off-site to form easy-to-erect panels, the full frame could be delivered to the contractor in the required erection sequence and simply bolted together on location.

Thomas Atkin of Atkin Trade Specialists, who installed the Metframe system, commented “Building a multistorey, steel structure on top of a pre-existing building is a complicated process and there were numerous design considerations to prepare for. However, in total, the construction of all 178 units took just 16 weeks, which is highly impressive for a build this big. Metsec worked closely with us to produce a 3D design of the hotel structure for Galliford Try, which enabled us to plan the works and adhere to the contractor’s construction programme. This, in turn, helped to reduce waste and emphasise the environmentally friendly aspects of the build - an ethos which we hold close to our own hearts.”
