The Xella Silka Element Challenge:
Building an Apartment in a Day

An exciting LIVE construction demonstration

South East Construction Expo Thursday 26 September 2019, 9:00 am to 4:00pm
South of England Event Centre, Ardingly, Haywards Heath RH17 6TH

The Xella Silka Challenge is to complete the construction of the structural walls of a one bedroom apartment ready to receive the Precast Floors, LIVE at the SE Construction Expo.

The build progress will be visible throughout the day and attendees to the show are encouraged to visit the ‘Xella Lounge’ situated behind the construction area to learn more about the Silka Element System. Visitors will be able to observe the MFS team hard at work laying each Silka block using the Lissmac mini-cranes in approximately six minutes.

The speed of construction has to be seen to be believed!

MFS are Building the Future with Xella

In an effort to meet today’s acute Housing deficit, European Global manufacturing giant Xella GmbH in association with Masonry Frame Systems Ltd and Lissmac GmbH are set to undertake a LIVE Demonstration to illustrate how their DfMA solutions more than meet today’s MMC demands.

As proud Headline Sponsors of SE Construction Expo 2019, Xella UK will be using the event to showcase the speed, precision and quality of their large format masonry blocks that are the Silka Element system. This focus reflects their recent investment and increased prominence in London and the South East.

Xella Presentations at 10.30am and 2.30pm in the Xella Lounge

Xella will also be showcasing their development of the Hololens and Mixed Reality AI system and other innovations in their Building of the Future presentations and in the Xella Lounge at 10.30am or 2.30pm.
