The Job

We supported Seddon with the redevelopment of Keele University’s Veterinary School. The project involved creating more teaching space.

The Results

Partnering with Drywall Pro-Cut saved 45 man days in total, and enabled the project to run to its initially agreed timescales.

Manufacturing components off site means less work to do on site by fewer people. With considerable health and safety benefits, off-site production reduces the likelihood of injury from manual handing, cutting on-site and dust inhalation. It also reduces on-site waste and the number of specialist plasterboard skips needed on site, which has significant cost-savings.

What We Did

Drywall Pro-Cut provided Seddon with deflection heads, builders work holes, pattresses and door sets to make the acoustic baffles for one of the university’s lecture theatres.

Time constraints for the project were tight, with Drywall Pro-Cut’s slot on-site being reduced from 5 weeks to 2 weeks.

However, because the components had already been constructed off site, meaning 70 percent of the work had already been done pre-installation, it did not have an impact on Seddon’s project schedule.
