As the £19.3m development at 14 Field Gate Street takes shape, the students of the top league London colleges can look forward to a high quality student accommodation within easy access to some of London’s most stylish pubs, clubs and shopping areas.
The development which is scheduled for completion by early 2012 will comprise of 339 student rooms, nine residential apartments, a reception area, complete with retail units on the ground floor. The site is located close to the Aldgate East tube station and is within easy commutable distance from the Queen Mary’s College, King’s College, the Imperial Colleges and the London school of Economics which admit nearly 60,000 full time students every year.
CSC Screeding worked with both main contractors Mace Group and JR Pickstock on the project, delivering high quality installation of 6000 sq.m of Gyvlon anhydrite screeds and 1200 sq.m of pumpable levelling / smoothing compounds for the development. Gyvlon self smoothing, self compacting anhydrite screed was installed as a ready mix and pumped with a remote controlled brinkmann pump, supplied by Tarmac.
The project was an opportunity for CSC to once again demonstrate our professional service and technical expertise, delivering quality despite adverse conditions on the site. Notwithstanding logistical hitches and onsite problems from late delivery of the ready mix trucks to carrying out the screeding before the installation of the roof for a screed that needs to be completed in a closed and water tight environment, CSC was able to handle the situation smoothly, delivering high quality against the odds.
CSC expects to secure further contracts from the Mace Group and JR Pickstock, with hope to continue providing quality and expertise gained from years of experience, working on extensive demanding and highly varied projects.
