The project was a student accommodation development containing 76 apartments. The client, Alvaro are a development company who specialise in creating student accommodation in the Midlands. BWP Plastering Services Ltd were contracted to undertake internal SFS and partitioned walls, dry lining and plastering to a high- quality finish with the required fire and acoustic performance. The client requested a project time line of six months to complete the project.
We began by installing all the internal SFS walls which were 100mm dense steel track and stud framed walls with deflection head detail to the top tracks.
Once all internal and external walls were installed to the first floor, we began installing the rip system
(please see blog rip system
) on all the internal walls and the cement particle boards to the external walls.
We then signed off these areas and continued up the four floors with the same process
Once all the other contractors had completed their first fixes, we then continued with the drylining and plastering throughout the project.
