Case Study - Realty Estates, Manchester This interesting project involved the installation of a 30,000ft2 steel warehouse, on top of and adjoining to an existing concrete structure. The project again involved a very tight deadline, which was achieved on target due to careful and effective project planning. An existing floor slab and layer of insulation had to be removed from the existing building to expose the concrete slab onto which the steel support columns would be placed. Placement involved pre drilling 600 holes into the reinforced concrete, to minute tolerances, to ensure that the anchor bolts were properly positioned.  All support columns were placed with no need for further drilling or adjustment. Since the existing buildings limited access to two sides of the structure, tower cranes were used to place some elements of the steel structure.  This involved placing steel beams of over two tonnes at a reach of 50 metres.  Professionalism in siting the tower cranes, and in communication between operatives, was therefore essential. The use of yellow external cladding, to match other buildings on the site, also presented a problem in that the raw material was unavailable unless very high premiums were paid.  Through  perseverance and many phone calls a stock was located at a cost effective rate: this effort by C21 saved the client a substantial amount.
