Metal Deck and Metcon, the steel decking and reinforced concrete floor divisions within Raised Floor Solutions, have secured the contract to design, supply and install the composite floor system for an exciting new multi-generational residential development in Lymm.
The pioneering new development is the first of its kind and blends retirement apartments and extra care facilities with a high-quality children’s nursery on the site of a former hotel on Whitbarrow Road.
The project is a joint venture with the McGoff Group and land owners Macdonald Hotels and is described as a “new concept in inter-generational living, bringing young and old together to form a thriving new hyperlocal community with proven health, social and wellbeing benefits for all”.
The scheme will provide a three-storey 66-bed care home, a three-storey block of 45 retirement and care apartments and a 120-capacity nursery.
To construct the composite floor system specialist steel decking contractors, Metal Deck, will first supply and install 1,224m2 of Kingspan Multideck MD80 XP. Metcon will then cast a 150mm concrete floor slab that will be reinforced with A142 steel mesh and given an easy float finish.
The project is scheduled for phase completion commencing with the nursery in October 2022 and the care home and apartments following in November and December 2022.
What is Kingspan XP Metal Deck?
Kingspan XP is the name given to metal deck profiles that are manufactured with additional corrosion protection. The metal decking sheets are hot dipped in Magnelis®, a unique chemical composition of 3.5% aluminium, 3% magnesium and zinc.
Magnelis® is manufactured by ArcelorMittal and provides the metal decking with up to three times greater corrosion resistance than standard galvanising as well as edge cut protection.
