Unitised Glazing


D&A Architectural Ltd are currently working on two large unitised projects in the heart of London, including the 4th Tallest tower in London, and tendering for more work in this sector.  By undertaking the project management, producing the necessary RAMS (Risk Assessments, Method Statements) including all CoSHH documentation, D&A are assuming full control of the installation works.  D&A are also supplying the necessary plant to carry out these technically challenging projects.  A key aspect of all unitised projects is the planning and control of material flow, and D&A produce short term programmes to track and identify ‘make ready’ needs associated with materials, plant, access and coordination with other trades, ensuring works continue efficiently and achieve the sectional targets set.  At the outset a strategy is devised and work teams implemented to maximise efficiency, generally consisting of a bracket team, Unit Installation team, and finishing squad whose responsibility is to complete work areas and achieve handover.  On certain projects D&A have also managed and carried out the logistics required for unloading and distribution of the materials, including where necessary the provision of providing the hoist driver, fork lift driver, and associated banksmen.
