Enquire about this Case Study

This student accomodation development in Wembley comprises of 802 student accommodation bedspaces set over a range of accommodation types. Two buildings standing at 17 and 8 storeys are separated by a communal shared courtyard.

The scheme was built using off-site construction methods and was completed within 12 months.

EH Smith were heavily involved with the specialist sub-contractor in selecting, detailing and supplying the pre-fabricated, insulated brick facade.

It is Century’s goal to engineer and build Facades and Envelopes to the highest level of excellence, and for us Dexion House is a great example of what can be achieved through clinical determination to achieve the same.

Century recognises that such levels of performance are simply not possible without the strongest of professional relationships built on trust with a small number of key suppliers. EH Smith comes at the very top end of that list demonstrating at all times a willingness to tell the truth in difficult situations and striving to make the seemingly impossible possible.

Large projects with tough deadlines and high client expectations from concept to completion require tough decisions and a real willingness to give for the team.

EH Smith Facades from top down have never shied away from the notion that we all need to stand together to achieve in such environments.
