The Job

Taylor Hart our parent company worked with McLaughlin & Harvey Ltd on a project at Coventry University, which involved repurposing two existing buildings and the construction of a new building used for the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.

The Results

Using off-site construction, a total of 598 man hours were saved on-site, or 76 days of labour. Following the project, McLaughlin & Harvey expressed further interest in utilising off-site production techniques after seeing the benefits on this project.

What We Did

After an initial project consultation, Drywall Pro-cut was instructed to produce all the deflection heads, builders work holes and door sets for the project.

We produced 3491m of deflection heads with a 72mm deep track and 2 layers of coreboard at our off-site facility, which eliminated 28 man-days on site.

The 248 door sets and 570 builders work holes were made exactly to the manufacturers specifications, which saved a further 48 man days on-site.
