Raised Floor Solutions has been awarded the contract to provide steel decking and reinforced concrete floors for the construction of two five storey apartment blocks at Abbeydale in Lower Falinge, Rochdale.
The homes have been designed by Levitt Berstein and form part of the final phase of a major new regeneration development for Rochdale Boroughwide Housing that replaces outdated 1960’s tower blocks.
Two buildings, each with five storeys, will provide 33 one- and two-bedroom apartments available for affordable rent. Neighbouring phases have delivered family homes for both affordable sale and rent.
The scheme is planned around a new central green public space that incorporates a communal garden and children’s play area.
The contract will be fulfilled by Raised Floor Solutions’ expert concrete contracting division, Metcon Concrete Floors. The Metcon team will design and cast a 150mm in-situ concrete floor slab over steel decking. The composite concrete floor will be reinforced with A142 mesh. The slab will then be given a combination of easy float and power float finish.
