Strong progress continues at Queen Mary University London!

Building envelope work at Queen Mary University of London is progressing well with the project due to be completed late 2016.

Clarke Facades is again collaborating with major UK construction firm Bouygues UK; the companies have previously worked together on many prestigious projects including, London Road and Southampton City Gateway.

Working in partnership with Bouygues UK, the £27 million contract will provide a new graduate facility as part of Queen Mary University of London (QMUL)’s main teaching campus in Tower Hamlets. The building will provide a vital research and teaching resource for the university and its growing number of postgraduate students; with large amphitheatre-style teaching areas and 63 offices dedicated to supporting postgraduates with their studies at the Mile End Road campus.

The eight-storey facility will be built with two concrete cores and feature a 750 tonne steel frame with a brick facade and curtain wall.

Clarke Facades, Project Manager, Leon Burgess commented: We are delighted to be working in partnership with Bouygues UK on this lucrative project. We have a broad scope of works on this project which involve;

  • Metsec, board insulation and brick ties
  • Aluminium cladding to soffits
  • Insulated render
  • Brick soffits
  • Capping to the perimeter of the building
