Metsec’s Steel Framing (SFS) products have been specified to support the development of Moneypenny’s new multi-million pound headquarters in Wrexham.

Spanning 91,000 square feet, the two-phase project is well underway; it is scheduled for completion in April.

The finished establishment will offer employee-focused spaces for Moneypenny. The telephone answering service and outsourced switchboard company will also benefit from an 8,000 square feet atrium with stadium seating and a restaurant.

Continuous SFS solution

SFS solution for Moneypenny HQAs the project’s main contractor, Pochin Construction enlisted Metsec to provide SFS continuous and infill walling across the office block’s three floors.

The company’s design team assessed the structural external wall options, before utilising BIM to produce construction principles in Revit.

In order to support the continuous external SFS walling system, dead load cleats will be fitted at first floor level and infill walling will be utilised on the ground floor areas.

The continuous SFS solution will be implemented from the first floor up, using the dead cleats. The infill walling will then be installed to unite the ground floor and the first floor.

The products will be installed by Pochin.
