London’s historical metropolitan area grew by 19 factory-produced new apartments!
Riga, Latvia, and London, UK, - July 2020 - Forta PRO has recently completed the delivery of its modular construction project to British property developer, Berkeley Homes at the Royal Arsenal Riverside in London, UK. THE OFFICERS HOUSE project consists of luxury apartment complexes flourishes in the very heart of the city - Woolwich area, combining historical value and modern convenience. This was the first collaboration of Forta PRO and Royal Arsenal Riverside.
Supervising every stage, from initial design to prefabrication, shipping, assembly, and finishing, Forta PRO presented 48 modules that became a 6-story building complex with 19 new apartments.
The design had to account for elegance, practicality, and the historical value of the site, as some parts of the neighbouring building date back 250 years. All project details had a 3D blueprint, allowing fitting into the intricate style of the district with a sleek brick facade while implementing useful solutions like large glass panels to attract more light.
Forta PRO design and factory precision production included fully furnished modules with kitchens, bathroom appliances and even furniture. During the production process Forta PRO refined the design drawings to make production straightforward, quick and of high quality.
Creating mock-up modules helps to thoroughly test the quality, longevity, and practicality of the future building. While prefabricating life-size modules and assembling kitchen and bathroom pods at the same factory lets the team of the same professionals account for all nuances, meeting an already established quality standard along with all customer’s requests.
During mock-up production if any miscalculations or issues are discovered, then a group of professionals led by senior architect analyse and instantaneously react to resolve any obstacle.
Forta PRO was able to ship the first out of 48 ready-made modules for THE OFFICERS HOUSE to the site in just over a month to later assemble them together using crane and a small assembly team. The quick onsite installation of the single bed and duplex apartments saves customer’s time, costs, and resources.
“Forta PRO is happy to announce that we have just completed our first residential building in the UK. There were many challenging issues, but we did it in very high quality!” - says Gints Bimanis, Forta PRO Board Member and Head of Project Management department.
