Wood Wharf, E14
Over the years we’ve supplied many MEP and HVAC contractors working on various projects in London Docklands. The latest being Wood Wharf, Canary Wharf’s new neighbourhood in E14.
Wood Wharf is a 5.5 million sq ft mixed-use development, consisting of new homes, office space, shops, restaurants and leisure space. Including communal roof terraces which will offer amazing views across London.
How Fixmart Provided Support:
We are currently providing a contractor at Wood Wharf with a fixings package, having engaged early in the project to review and approve the fixings required at a set rate. With us holding an agreed stock level to ensure predicted usage is always covered, preventing any unwanted delays. This really is a win win situation, as the contractor benefits from securing a fixed price with guaranteed stock availability, whilst we acquire a large order. Engaging early also gave us the opportunity to offer advice and organise anchor testing right at the start of the project, to make sure all the agreed anchors installed will meet with the required specifications.
Anchor tests involve attaching a test rig to an anchor and pulling to the designated stress load level in order to test the strength of the fixing. A comprehensive and detailed report is then supplied to show the conformance of the fixings to the required project load levels.
In addition, we are supplying other ranges such as phenolic blocks, due to our stock levels, which means they are readily available for next day delivery. Regular site visits are also undertaken by account managers, to make sure the project needs and restrictions, are both understood and met, such as deliveries being made to strict time slots.
