Following the trail of several triumphant ventures with Berkeley Group on schemes including Riverlight, Merano Residences, and Chambers Wharf, Wintech are delivering services for another significant development in London.
101 Prince of Wales Drive is replacing the former gas holders site near Battersea Power Station. The scheme is being run by St Williams; a joint venture between developers Berkeley Group and National Grid and is designed to be a residential-led mixed use development comprising a £367 million housing scheme, retail, educational uses and the creation of a public realm.
The buildings rise from 2 storeys to 26 storeys and the proposed layout maximises the amount of sunlight entering the development. Each block has its own different façade treatments providing variety through horizontal or vertical expression.
By sharing design responsibility between consultants and the curtain wall subcontractor, the client benefits from improved quality of final installation with a consultant producing a complete working design and thereafter providing professional consultancy services.
The architectural geometry on this scheme was refined in conjunction with the client and architectural team and develop a series of concept systems engineering drawings for commercial testing purposes and to agree the basis of the ongoing design.
