West Cheshire College chooses ComFlor® and Roof deck

19 October 2010 No Comment

Ellesmere Port Campus - ComFlor and D135
When constructing an educational establishment there are many factors that need to be considered.  In the case of the Ellesmere Port and Chester Campuses at West Cheshire College, the finished structures have to be architecturally striking learning environments that will provide a flexible and structurally robust space where educational and vocational students will be able to happily sit alongside each other.

The Ellesmere Port Campus involves the construction of a 19,500m2 new build art, design and media, hospitality and catering and hairdressing and beauty block.

Running in parallel, the Chester Campus construction programme consists of a 6,000m2 state-of-the-art science and technology teaching facility.

As part of the new build programme, 11,000m2 of 80mm composite floor decking was specified for both
campuses. Alongside this, 2,300m2 of 135mm structural metal roof decking was specified.

Handbridge Campus - D135The 80mm Floor deck is a shallow composite profile with an unpropped spanning capability of 4.4 metres. Supported, spans of over 5 metres can be achieved.

In the case of the campuses at West Cheshire College, the large spans achieved have resulted in less structural
steel being required – providing cost-effectiveness.
