Project Green floor decking


E.ON Headquarters, Nottingham

Project Green Nottingham‘Project Green’ was the aspirational title adopted for a project to provide energy giant E.ON with a new regional HQ for 800 staff in Nottingham.

The project consisted of 11,250m² of metal decking installed onto a steelwork frame, over 11 storeys, 2 of which were below ground level, complete with edge shutter and shear studs.

The project philosophy is to incorporate sustainable design principles, energy efficiency and green technologies to provide a first-class workplace.  It is expected that this will be the greenest building ever constructed in Nottingham with a BREEAM Excellent Rating and an Energy Performance Certificate rating of 'A'.

Bowmer & Kirkland were the principle contractor for the project with BWB Consulting as the engineers. BWB specified the ComFlor 60 profile to the majority of the project with a small area of ComFlor 80.

Composite Profiles were awarded the contract via Severfield-Rowen Structures who                                                         were the main steelwork contractor for the project.

Project Green Composite metal floorsDeliveries were a key aspect to this project due to site being situated on a one way street, right in the centre of Nottingham.

Also located within the one way system was a police station, fire station and The Guildhall, all of which had to be taken in consideration during our deliveries and subsequent works. The site had two unloading bays of which only one could be utilised at time as there was only one means available for offloading.  “One of the key characteristics of this project was ensuring that deliveries arrived on time, with the decking bundles loaded in the correct order for offloading. Enabling the steelwork contactor to offload the vehicles in a swift manor, direct to the steelwork and not having too much down time from steel erection” explained Project Manager Mark Harley.

The installation programme for the metal decking was very keen and the footprint of project helped us keep up good momentum due to the uniformity of most of the steelwork bays. The metal decking was set out within the bays with a closure plate at the start and finish of the first and last decking sheets. This system of works assisting in the speed of installation as the majority of decking sheets did not require any cutting.  “If we didn’t have the closure plate and had to cut the decking sheets, this could have added between three-four days, per floor, to the programme” expressed the metal decking foreman, Chris Lambe.

In conclusion, Composite Profiles completed the project in an extremely professional and proficient manor, with no delays or additional costs to the client.
