Working in Partnership with Durkan
EOS partnered with Durkan to design and engineer the steel framing systems (SFS) for two significant developments at opposite ends of London. Acting as the design and build contractor, Durkan secured the fundamentally different sites, which showcase their expertise in the London housing market.
BRITANNIA MUSIC DEVELOPMENT
Consisting of 354 contemporary residential apartments in four blocks of 9, 10,13 and 23 storeys – this major regeneration project is in the heart of Ilford town centre. The reinforced concrete structures with SFS infill, delivers excellent fire, acoustic and thermal performance. A key part of this successful scheme was our engagement and collaboration with Durkan and Fourpoint Architects at a very early stage of the proposed development which enabled the EOS team to efficiently design, engineer and manufacture the building envelope around the steel framing systems.
Located across five sites in the busy commuter suburb of Acton, London – Western Avenue is a substantial scheme of shared ownership, affordable rental, private sale and rental homes – created to provide a mix of apartments and larger family accommodation. The project for developer
Notting Hill Housing, consists of 180 flats and houses together with 128m2 of retail space.
EOS designed, manufactured and supplied SFS Infill frames for the main external building envelope with pre-assembled jambs, cills and lintels for the reinforced concrete structure.
One of the offsite solutions that offered maximum programme benefits to both projects was our innovative Thruwall® System – derived from the
Etex Building Performance group of companies. The Thruwall® System – combining BBA certified, non-combustible A1 external sheathing,
engineered steel framing system and internal wall linings – eliminates the challenges surrounding the specification of the building envelope by
providing a complete all-in-one solution.
EOS like to get involved right from the onset of projects for practical reasons. By providing advice and guidance throughout the design process,
the team can ensure that client’s gain the maximum project benefits. By working in close partnership with Durkan across the Britannia
Music and Western Avenue projects – the EOS team have been able to design and offsite manufacture steel framing solutions to deliver two
complex projects of differing scale and aesthetic – uplifting the area, rapidly and efficiently bringing much needed homes onstream.
