Sigmat installs superstructure for £20m Stockport Exchange project
Sigmat have been chosen by Eric Wright Construction to create the superstructure for a 7-storey hotel in the second phase of Stockport Exchange - the town centre’s new gateway development.
The 115-bed hotel will incorporate a bespoke SIGMAT light gauge steel superstructure and all frames will be manufactured offsite. The hotel is part of a huge mixed-use regeneration project led by the town council and specialist consultant, Muse.
Sigmat will begin onsite in November 2015 with the installation of the hot rolled steel podium transfer structure. The light gauge steel frames will follow on in January 2016, with the hotel scheduled for completion in November 2016.
SIGMAT will manufacture and supply a complete structural solution which includes a hot rolled steel ground floor podium transfer structure which will support the 6-storey light gauge steel frame above. Hot rolled steel staircases are also included within the scope of works and will all be fabricated in West Yorkshire.
