McMullen’s contract includes the design, manufacture and installation of the facades for the main tower and a 14-storey building alongside at the New District development.
The contract has benefited from significant early engagement with McMullen’s in-house design team who have worked closely with the project’s façade consultants FM+DC.
Facade elements, including the unitised panels, sliding doors and vents, will be manufactured offsite at McMullen’s recently expanded manufacturing facility in Portadown, Northern Ireland.
Early design work is well underway and McMullen is expected to start work on site in October.
McMullen’s’ appointment follows their past success of the innovative glazing and cladding package to Canary Wharf’s flagship Crossrail station.
The firm is also currently on site delivering the full vertical envelope to two of Elephant and Castle’s highest developments – the new 41-storey Two Fifty One scheme and The Highwood, a new 31-storey residential tower in Elephant Park.
