Higgins Construction - Bow River Village

Having recently carried out the brickwork on a prestigious project for Higgins Construction at Bow River Village, we are proud to be included within Ancon's project analysis which is featured on the front page of their website, and can be located using the following link https://www.ancon.co.uk/projects/residential/bow-river-village-london.

 

The project is featured on Ancon's home page as it saw the use of their Nexus support system; a ground-breaking range of lightweight brick faced soffit systems and lintels developed by two of the leading names in the industry, brick support specialist Ancon and brickwork component manufacturer, Ibstock Kevington. The project certainly included some interesting and developed details, but we must say that we found the Nexus support system easier to install on site being more adjustable and flexible than most single piece system.
