Mace has invested £9M in a radical new ‘jumping factory’ – a rapid construction method which will see buildings built at a rate of one storey a week. This building technique has taken an unusual approach by replacing traditional concrete columns with steel columns. These twin UCs support the jumping factory as it makes its way up the building.
As part of the development in the Olympic Park, MACE are creating two new luxury high rise flats. These highly desirable residences will benefit from some innovative function, a built-in water leakage “early warning system”. This new way of building needs “leak detection” because all floors are finished independently and proactive systems are needed to ensure any breaches of the water system are identified early and fixed before the next level is commissioned. This will be achieved by installation of Primayer’s network monitoring technology based on our highly efficient water data logger, the XiLog+ with overflow sensors.
