Achieving Excellence for Our Clients
Across Multiple Industry Sectors

Icarus light steel framing offers an alternative to traditional building techniques particularly in this sector by increasing speed of build on site. The use of Icarus steel as the primary building solution eliminates additional trades, bringing the whole build from walls and floors to roof solutions, within one package. The lightweight steel frame also offers full flexibility at the design stage, where the panelised nature of LSF means that working on tight sites adjacent to existing classroom blocks can be more effectively controlled and delivered.

Case Studies

MGP Grammar School Building

MGP Grammar School Building

Location: Bexley
Client: MGP
Icarus provided a single storey extension to an existing Grammar School in Bexley. The site was particularly challenging as access was extremely limited, however disruption was kept to an absolute minimum so that the school could resume normal activity. The time on-site was also minimised by the speed of construction due to the lightweight nature of our light steel framing.

Willmott Dixon Coulsdon College

Willmott Dixon Coulsdon College

Location: Croydon
Client: Willmott Dixon
Our scheme for client Wilmott Dixon consisted of a three-phase scheme to extend the college.  Within the new build element Icarus provided pre-assembled infill panels and continuous façade at a 4th floor level to take specialist cladding. The client was extremely impressed by our flexible attitude and approached us with a challenging problem –  they needed to enclose the plant room without any fixings to the floor area. Our design team relished the challenge and devised an innovative solution using light steel lattice beams. Because of the inherent strength-to-weight ratio of our products, this allowed the beams to span up to 14 metres.

Mosaic School Extension

Mosaic School Extension

Client: Galliford Try
Working with our client Galliford Try, we constructed two school blocks; a hall block and education block. Both are two-storey developments linking into the existing school, this provided 14 teaching rooms, as well as a school hall and a circulation area for the school students.

Farrans Ryefield School Blocks

Farrans Ryefield School Blocks

Client: Farrans
This project for construction client Farrans consisted of a two-storey block for the infants sector of the school and a single storey education block. The two-storey development also linked to the existing school structure providing multiple teaching spaces and circulation areas.
