Watkin Road is an elegant, high quality new 24 storey redevelopment of a brownfield site close to Wembley Stadium, for Barratt London. It will deliver 219 new homes, affordable workspaces, and a carefully considered new public realm.
Galldris initially undertook the groundworks and podium to level 2, the works were complicated by the need to build over an existing 1380×4000 trunk sewer, which is bridged by the main core cap. Excavation and plant loading in the vicinity of the sewer was restricted, dictating the build sequence.
The site footprint is tight, requiring “just in time” delivery processes. The site is located within the Wembley Growth Area and is surrounded by numerous other construction projects in various phases of construction. The superstructure is 24 levels each of 1000m2 up to level 18 where the structure steps back at each level to give a multiple block appearance.
