The Limes, Jersey

Expansive Social Housing Made with HadleyFRAME Technology

After the success of the large-scale facility and charity headquarters at Plaisant Place, social housing provider Andium Homes have seen the speed and efficiency of our light-gauge steel framing system.

So when they needed to construct an expansive new residential block at The Limes, they knew that HadleyFRAME was the clear choice.

We’ll be working with our trusted Jersey partners, Normans and ROK, to construct this brand-new apartment building using our pre-panelised steel frame modules — using offsite construction to assemble the panels both on and off the island.

But like most large-scale construction projects, we’ll have our own challenges to work through. With a restricted city site and expected tunnel closures, we’ll be maintaining two active faces to minimise any potential delays.

As well as our usual HadleyFRAME products (including board, grills, Wraptite, and the steel frame panels themselves), we’ll be adapting our engineering practices to accommodate bolt-on balconies loading over lintels.

With over 130 apartments across 6 floors of private balconies and communal landscaped gardens, The Limes is set to bring a huge new level of affordable housing to the communities of St Helier.

What is HadleyFRAME?

MMC in the UK

Working with Simply UK, the HadleyFRAME team recently topped out on a 3 storey care home in Hatfield, Hertfordshire. The scheme will produce 81 beds with an overall internal floor area of 4399m2. The programme duration for the steel framing was 15 weeks (excluding wind delays).

The site was logistically challenging due to the limited access and high traffic volume to neighboring properties. With significant restriction on lay-down space, there was tight control over delivery sequences to avoid overloading the site while remaining on target to achieve programme.
