An offsite fabricated Hybrid construction approach
PCE Ltd worked with main contractor Willmott Dixon during the tender phase to develop an offsite fabricated Hybrid solution for the concrete frame of the new Kingston University Town House in London.
The majority of it is exposed and requires a high standard of finish with architectural finished concrete being used for 175 external mullion and spandrel panels and over 300 beams and columns.

Delivering this architectural concept through innovative solutions and attention to detail through all DMC facets is an achievement to be proud of and pushes the boundaries of what can be achieved with PCE’s HybriDfMA approach.

“The organisation makes a three-dimensional matrix, one singular complex space, which links the various elements of the brief to one another, while at the same time giving each its own identity and privacy. Spaces and uses interlock, overlap, connect physically or visually. This environment encourages collaboration and exchange.”
