This project was the first to use extra-long modules that included two study bedrooms and a double corridor so that the construction process required minimal on-site work to the modules.
Derrick McLean Managing Director of DMC Global Construction was the Modular Construction Manager, on this project, Managing the on site Modular install/erection for the whole project on Futureforms behalf.
The project was built for client Victoria Hall and is a student residence building for the University of North London.
It consists of a slip formed concrete core and slab construction with a circular floor plan.

The west wing consists of 16 storeys of modules on a single storey concrete podium level and the north and east ‘wings’consist respectively 4 and 6 storeys of modules on a two storey concrete podium.
The building consists of 278 study bedrooms, of which 80% are in modular form located in three wings and 20% are built on site within the concrete core, and also 52 communal kitchen/lounges in modular form.
The bedroom modules were 14m long 2.7m wide comprising two 5.7m long rooms and a double corridor for fire and acoustic separation.
The lounge modules were 7m long 3.8m wide and provided communal space for 5 study bedrooms on each face of the wings.
A total of 130 long bedroom modules and 52 kitchen/lounge modules was installed over a 15 week period.
The services were connected along the corridors and the modules were delivered with additional boards to allow the corridors to be finished off after services where completed.
