Project Description

Electronic Engineering Building, Royal Holloway, University of London


A three storey fully HybriDfma offsite engineered structure incorporating over 5000m² of precast floor and roofing units.


The tight site location required PCE to be flexible with their build strategy, using a three-phase programme to maximise construction efficiency.


High quality finish to exposed concrete surfaces.


Constructed in 21 weeks with a 13-personnel site team and reduction in deliveries giving carbon footprint savings.
