Orwell Quay

Our works comprised the construction of reinforced concrete substructures and superstructures, comprising five residential blocks and accommodating 252 residential units. All five structures were post-tensioned, including the raft slabs, which we believe was a first in the UK.

Collectively, the project involved the installation of 22,000m² of gross floor area (with 2,200m² of single-level, ground-floor car parking), 14,071m³ of concrete, 2,050 tonnes of reinforcements and 47,860m².
