South East property developer Henley Homes awards Verteka follow-on order (02 Nov 07)
2nd November 07

Following on from Verteka's successful installation of 5 No. six and seven storey lift cores in Henley Homes' Carmine Wharf project in East London, Verteka PSF will be used to construct lift core and shear wall elements in Henley Homes' prestigious Clapham Cinema project in West London.

The Grade II listed building with prominent Art Deco features is being restored, with seven stories of luxury apartments being added alongside and above. Verteka's Permanent Structural Formwork system will be used to construct the lift cores from transfer slab upwards. Verteka PSF is also being engineered into the auditorium refurbishment, providing structural shear walls to assist in supporting the transfer slab.

Verteka PSF's favorable cost comparison as measured against traditional construction methods for these works, combined with proven speed of construction and experience gained on the East London site has made PSF a desired component in this high profile project.

The brick building which rises up high above the adjacent Clapham Junction railway station can been seen clearly from trains in and out of London. Henley Homes have already commenced ground works on site and Verteka will install the core system in January 2008.
