Bison appointed to Edinburgh residential project

The precast staircases will span from the ground to third floor

PRECAST concrete specialist Bison Manufacturing is to provide units for a new residential project in Edinburgh.

Developed by David Wilson Homes, the apartment block within the larger Liberton Grange development will consist of 32 flats, spanning across four floors.

Bison will supply a total of 2852m² of their 200mm deep Hollowcore floor units, as well as two staircases which will span from the ground to the third floor of the apartment complex.

The precast staircases will also offer immediate access to upper floors during the construction phase.

Bryan Galloway, construction director for David Wilson Homes East Scotland said, “Having worked with Bison on numerous other projects, we are aware of the benefits of using their products. For use in residential projects, their Hollowcore units offer great acoustic benefits that reduce noise transfer between apartments, ensuring maximium comfort for the future occupants of this development.”

Mike Nelson, Bison’s sales and commercial manager added, “This apartment block is one of many new builds within the Liberton Grange developments, and we’re delighted to have been appointed.

“By manufacturing our precast units in factory controlled conditions, we are able to guarantee consistently high quality products and overcome any issues with adverse weather.”
