New residential development in Hampstead, featuring four blocks of retirement apartments with complex brickwork facades.

Eckersley O’Callaghan has provided facade engineering services for this high-end residential retirement development in Hampstead.

The project consists of four connected buildings that range in height from 4-10 storeys. The complex design of the facades features steel framing systems (SFS) backing to hand-laid brickwork in feature bonds, intricate mechanically-fixed brick slip rain-screens, precast paneling, precast sills and banding, loggia balconies, composite punch windows and stick curtain walling.

We were engaged to bring design expertise to several difficult areas during tender negotiations with subcontractors, and have been instrumental in ensuring aesthetic and technical performance requirements are met.

Due to the complex Construction Management procurement strategy, we have also had significant involvement in effectively coordinating the numerous subcontractors, in design and on site, and have provided design solutions for issues that have arisen during the development of the various Contractor Design Packages.
