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.
Spearheaded by the developer Quintain – the masterplan sees a £1bn plus investment with a planned 7,000 new homes and the regeneration of the environment through the development of restaurants, leisure facilities and high-quality amenities.
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.

Located in the heart of Wembley Park, NW07 is a contemporary residential and retail development which sits between Page Place and Elvin Square. With 187 units of Build to Rent accommodation, the architecture is defined by four stepped buildings, echoing the form of the adjacent, Flanagan Lawrence designed Alto building. The facade is composed of tall, vertical frames, punctuated with balconies that allow each apartment to enjoy wide and open views. Adjacent to the main residential entrance on the ground floor, a series of community spaces are provided to promote interaction between residents. On the eastern side of NW07 a variety of retail units are situated along Page Place, a pedestrianised street with water features and a mixture of hard and soft landscaping.
NW08 is a contemporary mixed-use scheme of residential and retail units which sits between Olympic Way and Page Place. With 174 residential units, comprising 108 Build to Rent units and 66 Affordable Housing apartments which are all located above retail space at ground level. The facades create a dynamic form with roof terraces and large projecting balconies on the southern elevation which provides dramatic views of the stadium, and tall vertical recesses have been carved into the thick blade walls to provide locations for windows and balconies. Both projects create key focal points on the approach to the stadium.
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’ colour coding systems ensured this was managed efficiently.
