Balfour Beatty – Stonehouse Arena, Plymouth

001 02.07.2014 Balfour Beatty Training02/07/2014  Work continues on the new affordable housing scheme on the  former Stonehouse Arena sports ground in Harwell Street, Plymouth.

Balfour Beatty are constructing 46 new homes on the site – a mix of one, two and three-bedroom homes – all of which will be available for affordable rent. There will also be 10 two and three-bedroom properties for shared ownership sale. Photovoltaic solar panels will be fitted to generate electricity, and high levels of thermal insulation will help reduce energy consumption and fuel costs.

In order to meet the project programme and reduce project costings, Balfour Beatty have chosen  to use SafeStand® Access Systems for the construction of internal blockwork walls. Their brickwork subcontractor Sement Bricklaying Contractors Ltd are using the SafeStand® 800 5 Board System on the site. On 2nd July 2014 SafeStand® Ltd carried out a full days training session with representatives of both Balfour Beatty and Sement Bricklaying Contractors in attendance.

The £8m scheme is due for completion in January 2015.003 02.07.2014 Balfour Beatty Training
