As part of the Olympic Legacy Byrne Bros. are adding to their impressive portfolio of high rise concrete structures with the construction of two residential towers in Stratford. They form part of the International Quarter development on Londons’s eastern perimeter.
The developers claim the International Quarter will be an inspiring business and living environment with 4 million ft² of workspace, 330 new homes, a major 4 star design hotel, shops, restaurants, childcare and community facilities. The residential options include campus style houses and high rise towers with spectacular views of the City skyline.
It is on these two 20 and 25 level residential towers that contractor Byrne Bros. is using the automatic hydraulic climbing system MAC. This MEVA high-rise technology, its safety housing and wide working platforms won the job on account of its safety, efficiency and quality advantages.
One of them is that the hydraulic lift pushes off concrete that has already set, a big advantage in safety and speed. The climbing pockets are on the inside of the core. This enhances the quality of the concrete finish – a requirement increasingly stipulated by many architects. The lift is very easy to operate with only a small team.
Mammut 350 wall panels are used as suspended shutters. Their all-plastic facing delivers a superb concrete finish throughout the building process. There is little effort in adjusting the shutters in 3 directions and tight tolerances for accuracy. No special tools are needed.
