Situated next to the College of North West London, is the location of a striking new building to provide modern accommodation to students. The building is split into three wings around a central spiral-shaped 19 story tower.
The spiral shaped roof was fabricated and installed by ECS Engineering services using spiraled tube supplied by Barnshaws Metal Bending in West Midlands. It extends from the 8th floor to the 19th floor. ECS used Graitec Advance Steel CAD package to assist in the design for fabrication.
Architect for the £23.5m project was O’Connell East Architects.
Mace is the main contractor on the project, utilised modular construction techniques to deliver an accelerated completion.
The building contains 435 student rooms with en-suite facilities and features buildings at different heights to respond to neighboring lower residential and commercial buildings and nearby amenities.
