Project title: Victoria Wharf
Duration: 24 Months
The Victoria Wharf project included the development of a brownfield site in Cardiff’s Grangetown area, adjacent to the mouth of the Ely River. The site was developed into a residential site in three phases with a total of 478 apartments being constructed. Group SCS was appointed to install its uniVent System in all seven residential apartment blocks of the Bryant Homes Victoria Wharf Development in Cardiff Bay.
Group SCS installed its uniVent standard smoke shaft system throughout Victoria Wharf which resulted in a low cost, low maintenance solution with predictable final costs. There has not been a single variation to date on the project and no additional costs. SCS installed safety grids for smoke shafts prior to construction of the shaft, which eliminated a potential fall hazard and saved the cost of scaffold within the shaft. In addition, we combined stairwell ventilator/access hatch was used for every stairwell at Victoria Wharf, instead of the separate vent and access hatch originally proposed, saving the cost of the access hatch.
