Pheonix Residential Housing
The range of services supplied by the MIB Facades is well demonstrated at the 9-storey Pheonix House Residential Housing scheme in Southall, London.
Main contractor Vascroft awarded the Infill, Structure and Facades work to MIB which has offices in Cardiff and Cheshire from where we are able to manage our projects throughout the UK.
In the first phase, MetSIP panels were used as infill to the concrete superstructure over 7 storeys. The work was carried out in a fraction of the time it would have taken with traditional methods.
The next phase involved constructing a 2 storey residential block on the top of the first phase using the MIB Framespace Structure system which combines the MetSIP panel with Light Gauge Steel internal load bearing walls, illustrated below: The product is manufactured at MIB’s own 28,000 sq.ft. facility in South Wales.
The work was carried out in a fraction of the time it would have taken using traditional methods and with off-site production there was minimal waste and the site was a cleaner and safer one in which to work. Housing is just one aspect of MIB’s work. Other on-going projects include the Hotels, Student Accommodation and Healthcare sectors.
