Hayes Engineering were required to draft, fabricate, paint and erect 90 tonnes of structural steel to plan, sequence and cost. This included all steel portal frame structural steelwork, along with all secondary steelwork to facilitate the fixing of the new cladding. Hayes Engineering had one erection team on site for two weeks, finishing the project in April 2018.
Using Tekla Structures software, Hayes Engineering was able to model and deliver the entire project to BIM level 2. The IFC Models created by Hayes Engineering were used to create accurate 2D General Arrangement drawings for comment by Avonside Construction, Structural Engineers, Architects and clash detection by other sub-contractors such as Cladders.
Once approved, Hayes Engineering were able to fabricate and erect to completion within a four-week window. The project was manufactured to execution level 2. Hayes Engineering has delivered over 15 Aldi Stores structures through this framework to date, as a result of effective partnership with the client, timely delivery and a demonstratable record of high-quality fabrication and erection.
