Modern methods of construction
Further development of the Seismic frame
One of the key objectives for Seismic II was to design, test and develop the roof, ceiling, internal/external wall, cladding and flooring systems for schools & other markets - to fit on the Seismic steel frame designed in Seismic I.
In addition to this, the Seismic II project sought to develop a digital process from 3D CAD file to manufacturing line, establish the whole life cost and carbon of the Seismic platform and design an automated manufacturing line.
Through working with the Seismic II consortium, Tata Steel UK have developed their own complete building system compatible with the Seismic frame and modern methods of construction.
This building system consists of floor cassette, ceiling cassette, internal / external wall system including internal liner and cladding that are focused on reducing module assembly time for manufacturers as well as being a pre-assembled kit of parts, for assembly directly on site.
In addition to this Tata Steel have developed drop-on roof cassettes that are designed to enable modular manufacturers to deliver a complete system with less time and effort.
