RIBA 3-5 Technical design for the factory. Adapted M-AR's system to fit planning approval
Point loaded steel frame modular
Centrepoint had already obtained planning permission for a 33-unit project, and M-AR enlisted the services of Modularize to create manufacturing information based on the planning drawings.
what we did
During the design process, it was evident that using the standard M-AR system would result in a building that exceeds the height and width limits approved by the planning authority.
The decision was made that returning to planning posed too great a risk. Modularize collaborated with the design team to rework the wall, floor, and ceiling build-ups to fit within the constraints of the planning approval
We took the design from RIBA Stage 3 to RIBA Stage 6.
The Centrepoint scheme has received positive news coverage since its opening by Prince William.
Modularize was able to apply our experience of M-AR's manufacturing process to make workable changes in order to meet the planning requirements. This resulted in a successful project.
