what we did...

Midbrook Steel Buildings was approached by Oratory Preparatory School to provide a turnkey solution for their new facilities in Reading. The project aimed to construct steel frame buildings for a grounds and maintenance storage area, offices, and a canteen. As specialists in steel frame buildings, Midbrook Steel Buildings was entrusted with the task of delivering a bespoke steel building solution tailored to the school’s requirements.


Steel Frame Buildings Project Scope

Midbrook Steel Buildings was contracted to provide a total project management package, encompassing various aspects of construction. This included groundworks, supply and fitting of the steel frame buildings, internal fit-out, utility connections, mechanical and electrical works, internal decoration, and the construction of a concrete yard area. The steel building project timeline was set at 14 weeks, demanding efficient planning and execution to meet the client’s expectations.


One of the primary challenges faced by our team at Midbrook was to seamlessly integrate the different components of the project within the stipulated timeframe. Coordinating various subcontractors and ensuring smooth collaboration between teams was crucial to avoid delays. Additionally, maintaining the highest standards of safety and quality throughout the construction process was paramount, considering the project’s location within a school campus.


Drawing upon our years of expertise in steel frame buildings, Midbrook Steel Buildings devised an extensive plan to tackle the project challenges effectively. By acting as the main contractor, we assumed responsibility for overseeing all aspects of the construction process, from initial groundwork to final touches. Utilising advanced construction techniques and state-of-the-art materials, we ensured the structural integrity and durability of the steel frame buildings.


Despite the complexities involved, Midbrook Steel Buildings successfully delivered the project within the prescribed 14-week timeframe. The grounds and maintenance storage building, offices, and canteen were completed to the satisfaction of Oratory Preparatory School, meeting their functional requirements while adhering to the highest standards of craftsmanship. The seamless integration of steel frame structures with other construction elements resulted in a cohesive and visually appealing campus addition.


The collaboration between Midbrook Steel Buildings, Oratory Preparatory School, and other stakeholders exemplifies the effectiveness of strategic planning, meticulous execution, and seamless coordination in delivering complex steel-framed building projects. By leveraging our expertise in steel frame buildings, we not only met but exceeded the client’s expectations, contributing to the enhancement of educational facilities for future generations.
