Kane have secured a £29 million contract with Willmott Dixon to deliver the MEP packages across several blocks of the Gascoigne Estate Projects in London.
The 30-month contract consists of the design and construction of 660 residential units over six blocks. The dwellings are mixed tenure throughout the site, with shared ownership, affordable and Private Sale.
As a result of Kane’s ongoing relationship with Wilmott Dixon and their proactive approach to this project, Kane secured early instruction to complete the MEP design from stage 2, which has proven invaluable in terms of project collaboration and identifying and addressing buildability issues. It has enabled Kane to maximise off-site works and utilise digital methods to speed up production and quality onsite.
At the forefront of off-site construction solutions, Kane’s in-house teams will design, manufacture, and install the plant rooms and will also incorporate their innovative user-friendly HIU (Heat Interface Unit) Utility Cupboards which will be fully fitted and pre-tested before on-site delivery.
Early contractor involvement will facilitate Kane’s digital construction methods on this project, delivering the MEP installation much earlier in the build sequence by utilising point cloud survey and VR technology. Kane’s unique approach will provide significant programme savings on this project.
We are delighted to continue to deliver superior MEP contracts for our longstanding client, Willmott Dixon. Our team are looking forward to collaborating with the whole project team to ensure we deliver an exceptional project.Cathal McMullanManaging Director
