The largescale regeneration of Wembley Park and the surrounding areas has been ongoing since the stadium was built in 2007 – wide-ranging schemes and facilities are emerging from the ground around the home of English football. As part of the regeneration – spearheaded by the developer Quintain – the masterplan sees a £1bn plus investment with a planned 7,000 new homes and the regeneration of the entire retail, cultural and civic environment through the development of restaurants, leisure facilities and high-quality amenities to support the impressive stadium.
DESIGN & VISION
To date EOS has secured three major projects within the greater Wembley Park masterplan and has designed and offsite manufactured steel framing systems (SFS) for the 312-bedroom Premier Inn hotel together with two separate mixed use residential and retail developments. Reflecting the area’s heritage whilst embracing modernity – the schemes involved contemporary facades mixing cladding, masonry and cool palettes.
The objective for the three individual schemes was to rapidly deliver fully engineered SFS infill solutions to BIM Level 2 – executed with high precision and finish to an outstanding quality. Ahead of schedule and on budget – EOS designed and delivered with precision, highly cost-effective offsite manufactured steel framing systems for different building types across one of the UK’s largest construction sites.
Site restriction meant that ‘just in time’ deliveries had to be carefully scheduled, off-loaded immediately and distributed to the relevant locations. EOS Facade’s colour coding systems ensured this was managed efficiently. The greater Wembley Park masterplan involves low impact, sustainable materials wherever possible and it is estimated, will create over 8,000 new jobs.
