The domination of large UK fabrication projects by contractors from mainland Europe is being seriously challenged by London-based, British façade specialists, M Price Ltd, who are currently at work on a 27-storey residential tower-block for Barratt Homes at Maple Quays, part of the massive Canada Water development in South-East London. M Price, who secured the £8million unitised contract against strong competition last year, are particularly pleased because the win vindicates the substantial investment in people, premises and facilities that they have made in order to be able to move into large-scale, off-site fabrication. The contract calls for the fabrication over 1,000 3m x 2.5m unitised elements which are all being produced in M Price??s newly acquired and fully equipped 20,000sqft factory space in Enfield. Work commenced in December 2011 and delivery to site began in June this year. The project is due for completion in March 2013.
