W.A.S.T. Pentwyn, Cardiff

Hayes Engineering was appointed as the sole structural steel fabrication and erection team for the new re-roof structure and conversion of two existing 2.5-storey steel framed buildings. Blocks A & B were adapted to provide a new ambulance station for the Welsh Ambulance Service / Shared Services NHS (W.A.S.T) Pentwyn, Cardiff.

A distinguishing feature of the W.A.S.T. building is the 2,253 square meter footprint and the mezzanine floor within Block B, which overlooks the entire ambulance / vehicle bay.

This project was delivered under the Considerate Constructors Scheme.

Delivery

Hayes Engineering were required to draft, fabricate, paint and erect over 44 tonnes of structural steel to plan, sequence and cost.  This included all alterations to the existing portal frames’ structural steelwork, along with secondary steelwork to facilitate fixing of the new cladding.

Hayes Engineering deployed one erection team on site for this scheme from September – October 2020. During this time, we removed over 4.5 tonnes of existing steel to allow us to install the new structural steels for both Block A and B, along with the installation of the mezzanine floor and stairs for Block B.

Outcome

Hayes Engineering were able to fabricate and erect to completion within a seven-week window. The project was manufactured to Execution Level 2.

Trago Mills, Merthyr Tydfil

Hayes Engineering was appointed as the sole structural fabrication and erection team for the 200,000 sqft, Trago Mills store, based on the outskirts of Merthyr Tydfil, South Wales.

The project, with its unique castle-like architecture, was a complex structure comprising of a warehouse, retail unit, two storey office building, shops, railway, security office, main entrance, café building, external walkways, workshop and offices.

Delivery

Hayes Engineering was required to draft, fabricate, paint / galvanize and erect over 3000 tonnes of structural steel to plan, sequence and cost.

Stretching 1⁄2 mile long end-to-end, the structure provides 215,000m2 of retail space. The main retail unit and warehouse superstructure, comprised a single storey steel portal frame installed on a pad foundation with perimeter strip footing. The structure installed by Hayes Engineering provided full support for the lightweight roofing and cladding finish applied. Hayes Engineering had two erection teams on site for nearly 18 months, starting with the painted main portal building and finally finishing erection with the galvanized mansard walkways in March 2017.

Outcome

The project achieved BIM level 2 using our Tekla BIM software. Models created with Tekla BIM software contain accurate, reliable and detailed information needed for successful

Building Information Modelling and construction execution.

Tekla structures has improved the way we work in our own offices and with our Clients by creating more accurate ways of working and streamlining collaboration between all parties, at all stages of the construction project Models were shared with all parties on the project team using 4Projects (online platform), for clash detection and comment. Through this collaborative approach the project was delivered to budget and programme, with coordination checks carried out at the earliest opportunity to mitigate time and cost inflation.

Ice Arena Wales, Cardiff Bay

Hayes Engineering was appointed as the sole structural fabrication and erection team for the £16M landmark ice rink, which houses two ice pads. The scheme was described by developers Greenbank as a ‘world class facility capable of holding Olympic and European standard events’; it is also used for public skating and schools.

Delivery

Working closely with the Client, Hayes Engineering drafted, fabricated, painted and erected over 850 tonnes of structural steel to plan, sequence and cost.

The completed structure houses:

  • An Olympic size main ice pad of 65 metres by 30 metres, 4 metres longer and 4 metres wider than the previous facility.
  • A second slightly smaller pad of 54m by 24m, where junior hockey matches could be played.
  • 4 curling lanes; the first ever in Cardiff.
  • A gymnasium, featuring around 30 work stations and a dance studio.
  • Facilities to stage major boxing or other sports events if required.

Outcome

Using Tekla Structures software, Hayes Engineering was able to model the entire project to BIM level 2. The IFC models created by Hayes Engineering were uploaded onto 4Projects (online platform), along with 2D General Arrangement drawings for comment by Kier, Structural Engineers, Architects and clash detection with all stakeholders.

During construction the steel fabrication model was provided for approval in 3D format, which greatly assisted the approval process. Once approved, we were able to produce 2D fabrication drawings direct from the model, ensuring accurate and high-quality fabrications.
