Full Façade Consultancy services were provided for Essential Living on Union Wharf; a build-to-rent scheme with 249 homes designed specifically for families.
This project is one of the tallest residential modular buildings in the UK since its completion. Built using a central concrete core with perimeter steel pods, this innovative form of construction cut down site installation time considerably and provided increased quality assurance in a factory controlled environment.
The façade predominantly utilises a mechanically fixed brick slip façade system, an integral glazed aluminium window system with lift and slide doors, external bolted balconies and limited areas of a white porcelain type cladding system.
Union Wharf won the Sunday Times Housing Project of the Year Award 2015 based solely on the CGI visualisations of the scheme, Private Rented Sector Project Award in 2016 as well as a shortlist at the 2020 Housing Design Awards for Completed Project.
