Mansonry Frame Systems

Eastbourne College, East Sussex


We were awarded the contract by Vinci Construction to carry out the installation of the Silka Elements at their College development.

“The guys did very well to pick up on the system and we learnt a lot together with regards to sequence, call-off etc. Other than a few delivery hiccups the service was good and it is great to see so little waste on site from such a large amount of masonry. Both Norman and I believe the product very beneficial to a repetitive structure with standard openings that can utilise the Silka Lintels etc. With optimal results from designing a building with the system in mind rather than adapting a design intended for another methodology.” Mike Rosier, Senior Project Manager, VINCI Construction UK Ltd.


We installed 2500m2 of 150mm and 215mm elements over the 3 storey’s of the classroom block.

Precast concrete floors where then placed on to the walls at each level.

All works including the floor installation took 7 weeks to complete.


Take a look at these great before and after shots of the building.
