Located on London’s Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, the new UCL East campus will provide a world-class academic facility when it is completed for the start of the 2022/23 academic year.
We have been appointed to construct the substructure for a nine-storey superstructure concrete frame. Substructure works include the design and installation of ‘flying props’, an RC basement slab and lining to the walls of ground floor, excavation for pile caps and ground beams at ground floor level, and drainage works. We are designing, fabricating, and constructing four large scale cores using both the Doka SKE50 system as well as the Peri RCS Max jumpform system.
UCL is committed to ambitious sustainability goals, a key part of which is ensuring that their buildings achieve net zero carbon. To reduce the impact of concrete we selected a blended concrete mix of cement with 40% GGBS to reduce embodied carbon.
