Mansell to install Metsec Metframe on £4 million residential scheme

Mansell Finishes has been appointed by Main Contractor Brymor Group to supply and install a Metsec Metframe SFS pre-panelised system as part of the new Boyn Valley residential development located on Boyn Valley Road in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

Mansell Finishes’ works are expected to last 12 weeks and will commence at the end of October 2018, completing early February 2019. Worth almost £675,000 to the company, Mansell Finishes’ brief is to install 3,500m2 of pre-panelised SFS and hand over a watertight shell to Brymor Group as soon as possible.

A quick turnaround of Mansell Finishes’ involvement on the project, a key objective of the tender, can be assured as pre-panelisation of the frames will be completed off-site at the company’s production facility in Middleton, Manchester. Once pre-panelised, the panels will be delivered to site at the exact time they are required using just in time delivery logistics. 

Once completed the development will offer 40 one- and two-bedroom apartments with basement parking. The complex is a Shared Ownership Scheme and will be managed by One Housing Group, the housing association that currently manages around 16,000 homes across London and surrounding counties.

Mike Foy, Commercial Director at Mansell Finishes, comments: “Speed of construction is of the essence on this project and we are very well positioned to be able to offer this to Brymor Group due to our extensive production facility and our experience of this kind of residential scheme. Our knowledge came to the fore at the tender stage as we were able to offer a high level of advice including guidance on the positioning of the crane, a key requirement as this development is within an existing residential area. This was all very well received by Brymor Group and key to us securing the business.”
