N06 project commences in London
A revolutionary new system of offsite construction for the UK is being delivered by a team consisting of Mace Group, PCE Ltd and Oranmore Precast Ltd to provide 524 residential apartments in Stratford, East London.
The project, with an overall value of £179 million, known as East Village N06, is part of the regeneration of the former 2012 London Olympics site.
The scheme has been developed for client Get Living, with Architects Hawkins Brown and Structural Engineer Walsh.
The team, working in collaboration, have developed an innovative off-site engineered Hybrid construction approach known as HRS (High Rise System), which provides clients with the fastest and highest quality multi-storey structures for residential occupation.
The system is currently being used to deliver the superstructure, façade, bathrooms and primary M&E Services for the two towers at East Village N06 which are 26 and 30 storeys tall.
The HybriDfMA process and the “kit of parts”
PCE’s role in the collaboration is to provide pre-construction expertise, detail design, planning, off-site and on-site assembly with its directly employed multi-skilled construction teams and using its proven HybriDfMA processes.
PCE has established extensive experience and a first-class track record for delivering offsite engineered structures for high-rise buildings using its ‘kit of parts’ philosophy, such as the recently completed Chapel Wharf project in Manchester.
The HybriDfMA approach facilitates a broader prefabrication strategy with façade sections being preassembled and fixed offsite onto the external precast concrete floor units to allow the envelope to be constructed concurrently with superstructure without the need for scaffolding or site operatives working at height externally to the structure. In addition, prefabricated M&E modules, bathroom pods and utility cupboards are all integrated into the erection of the two towers as they progress.
