Interserve Albion Gate Housing Development

Taylor Wimpey and Interserve choose HAKI Universal for the new housing development in Preston, UK

Project Brief
Taylor Wimpey is building a new housing estate in Leyland town centre called Albion Gate. The first phase of development will see 234 three and four bedroom homes built throughout 2014.
Key Project Obstacles
The project required a scaffolding solution that had the speed to keep up with the fast moving pace of construction.

HAKI Solutions
The scaffolding contractor, Interserve, chose HAKI Universal system scaffolding to meet the needs of Taylor Wimpey. HAKI Universal can be erected and dismantled 60% faster than tube and fittings and at least 30% quicker than other systems. The adaptability of the system enables horizontal or vertical off node connections to be made anywhere along the ledger. This allowed Interserve to build a scaffold to suit the irregular shapes of housing projects using the larger 3m bay length. Interserve also used HAKI Stair Tower and Loading Towers on site to deliver men and materials to the work face safely and efficiently.

Client Feedback
Paul Smith, General Manager Interserve, said
"It was a joint initiative between Taylor Wimpey, Interserve and HAKI to utilise the Universal system as it gave them the highest level of safety, the adaptability to meet the shapes of modern housing units, the rigidity of Tube and the speed of production to meet Taylor Wimpey demands".
Karl Pearce, the scaffold supervisor, commented "the HAKI Loading Tower is 10 times faster to erect compared to the tube and fitting tower. In fact we have had to erect 6 towers up to first lift in Tube now we have the HAKI we will strip the tube towers and replace with HAKI towers and we will still save time".
