The team at eXtreme Steel were instructed to price both the Internal and External Work for the Metalwork on the proposed Secondary school in Stanhope St. Dublin 7.
Extreme Steel were successful in the first phase of the proposed works. This involved the design, fabrication, supply and installation of a 20metre long bike shelter which would provide a safe method of access and egress to the students of the school utilising bicycles and also a place of shelter during inclement weather.
Our designer set about drafting up detailed plans to the Architects specifications and the drawings were approved for construction. The fabrication team set about engineering the tubular steel frame and square section purlins and, once completed, they were sent away for galvanising and powder coating.
Materials used during the construction of the Bike-Shelter were as follows,
- 50mm CHS Tube (Frame)
- Countersunk Anchor Bolts fixed flush to the concrete slab as an anti-trip mechanism
- 50x50x2.5mm Box Section (Roof Purlins)
- Tegral R32 Roof Cladding
- All tube bending was carried out by our workshop team to fit the curve of the cranked R32 Roof Cladding
We were contractually obligated to complete the works from Monday August 12th – Friday August 16th, however the team worked hard to complete the installation by Thursday; one full working-day under programme. This was eXtreme Steels first project under the new Public Works Contract (PWC) and the Main Contractor and our team were happy with the end product. We are hopeful of obtaining the contract for the second phase of Internal Works for this project in the near future and continuing our partnership with Purcell Construction Ltd.
