Fieldgate Street, London – Structural Bathroom Pods & Light Steel Frame
Client: Chancery Gate Asset Management
Architect: Axis, Sheppard Robson
Elements Europe, worked in collaboration with Mace, to deliver a 343 bedroom mixed use scheme comprising of both student and residential accommodation in the heart of Central London near Whitechapel. The accommodation was delivered on behalf of Chancery Gate Asset Management Ltd.
Project Description: 341 Structural Bathroom Pods and Light Steel Frame
The project saw Elements Europe use their LSF Façade and LSF Structure products, providing the complete light steel frame structure. 343 structural Bathroom Pods, corridors, as well as access and service areas were also manufactured for the development.
The circular building extended to eight storeys, and posed several challenges such as a faceted front elevation, angled rooms and corner windows. Elements Europe undertook the delivery and installation which integrated seamlessly with Mace’s construction programme.
The LSF Structure system consists of structural Bathroom Pods that stack on top of each other providing a ‘core’ for the LSF Façade to be tied into.
The LSF Façade system provides the structure of the building using light gauge steel frame. The steel is rolled in Elements Europe’s own manufacturing facility before being formed into panelised wall sections which are then delivered directly to site for installation.
