Wharf Road

  • Project:Wharf Road
  • Client:A2 Dominion
  • Contract value:£56.7m

A significant mixed-use development which is situated alongside the Wenlock Basin of Regent’s Canal. The project includes 327 new homes (for private sale, shared ownership and social rent) arranged in four blocks which range from seven to 10 storeys, with roof top play areas and terraces plus almost 6,000 sq ft of commercial space.

BIM modelling

We are working with architects FraserBrownMacKenna and project designer Stephen Marshall to deliver this building using the BIM (Building Information Modelling) 3D digital construction.

The BIM concept envisages virtual construction of a building prior to its actual physical construction to reduce uncertainty, improve safety, work out problems and simulate and analyse potential problems.

BIM allows important decisions regarding the project’s lifecycle to be made reliably ahead of time and maximise productivity on-site during the build programme, which can reduce construction time and decrease costly deliveries and site waste.

Challenges

Construction of Wharf Road requires great care as the double storey basement is situated between listed buildings within a conservation area.

Energy Efficiency

All of the apartments within this development will meet the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4 and the commercial spaces will meet BREEAM Excellent.
