After having the great idea of putting a mobile crane on top of our project in Chelsea, which we undertaking for Banda Properties. We thought it would be a very good idea to see how it worked out, by recording the precast cladding install on a time lapse video.
The precast concrete panels with cast in bricks were manufactured and erected by Sterling Services, who worked closely with us to agree the sequencing of the cladding install to limit the time on site to a minimum. We estimate that by using cladding panels over an in-situ build we saved 60% on the erection period.
Below are the results, which shows the installation unfolding over a four week period.
