Achieving Excellence for Our Clients
Across Multiple Industry Sectors

One of our greatest benefits in comparison to traditional building techniques is the increase speed of build on site. The use of Icarus light steel framing as the primary building solution eliminates additional trades on site which brings the whole build including walls, floors and roof solutions into one neat package.

The lightweight quality of steel frame also allows for flexibility at the design stage and the panelised nature means that working on tight sites, adjacent to existing blocks, can be more effectively controlled and delivered.

Benedict Building Social Housing Apartments

Benedict Building Social Housing Apartments

Client: Gentoo Group Ltd.
Location: Sunderland
A challenging scheme for social landlords Gentoo who, in a stretching economic climate, had to provide quality new homes to re-house a tight knit community in central Sunderland. The new development provided 58 one and two bedroom apartments over 8 floors in a convenient city centre location in close proximity to many essential shops and services.
Icarus supplied and installed infill panels to the hot roll frame delivering a water tight structure in minimum time. Just in time deliveries to site with frames colour coded and batched and efficient working practices kept the project ahead of programme. Balancing cost against quality build was a key requirement for the client. The value engineered system with fabrication off-site reduced preliminary site costs.
