Hueck products selected for £50m Wembley development
Posted on 23/08/2017
Hueck has supplied its aluminium systems for a 699-bedroom student accommodation building overlooking Olympic Way’s approach to Wembley Stadium.
Unite Olympic Way is a £50m development offering high-quality en-suite and studio rooms in the regenerated area of Wembley, home to the world-famous football stadium and newly built retail outlet centre.
It also offers quick links to universities, with central London less than 20 minutes away via the tube.
The 19-storey tower was developed with a focus on communal areas. There is a shared rec room and study area throughout as well as external roof terraces on the second and seventeenth floors.
The building features a traditional concrete frame and a mix of curtain walling and Vitrobond aluminium cladding.
Hueck supplied its market leading aluminium (windows and doors) for 600+ dorm rooms and communal areas. The project was completed in August 2016 and officially opened in October of that year.
Leon Friend, Director at Hueck, commented: “Unite Olympic Way is a striking building located next to the stadium so it needed products that had wow factor. Our products not only set the standard in performance, they are designed to be aesthetically pleasing – featuring ultra slim sightlines and a consistent appearance in-line with our other systems.”
Unite Olympic Way is part of one of the largest regeneration projects in the country. According to the Mayor of London it can accommodate approximately 11,500 new homes and 10,000 new jobs through the development of sites along Wembley High Road and the land around Wembley Stadium.
Hueck has been involved in several regeneration projects over the past few years, drawing residents and investors alike into the UK’s urban hotspots.
Leon comments: “Regeneration reverses economic, social and physical decline in previously neglected areas that are perceived as undesirable by investors and potential house buyers. By tackling the barriers to growth, regeneration helps create thriving communities that in turn allow businesses and the economy to prosper.”
