A high-rise development consisting of 22,360sqm of space, Dexian house can be found in the heart of Wembley and is made up of two blocks. One block is 18 storeys and the other 9 storeys, requiring us fabricate and supply 802 apartments worth of aluminium windows. The project was overseen by HTA Architects who we had previously worked with on prior builds intended for student accommodation, making us both familiar with how each other operates.
Expected to play host to hundreds of students attending university in London, the hope in constructing Dexian House was to create 802 dedicated student rooms complete with extension gym facilities and swimming pool. Appointed by architect HTA Design LLP and working with contractors Donban construction, AGF were happy to contribute via the fabrication and supply of CS68 aluminium windows.
Dexian House was completed within an impressive 12-month construction period, providing adequate accommodation for hundreds of students from 2016 onwards. Such swift turnaround was chiefly possible as a result of the development’s steel-framed modular construction, as well as the efficiency of all those involved.
Construction work began on the project in early 2014, With the building being clad in a mixture of materials including brick slip, aluminium, render and GRC. The external areas were well landscaped with a combination of growing ground cover, brick and stone paving, seating and amenities, and extensive green roof finishes, before the time finally came for us to supply our sleekly fabricated CS68 Reynaers windows to Donban UK.
CS68 aluminium windows were ideal for this type of project due to the system’s natural ability to act as a universal solution. With such a right turnaround time, a great all-rounder seemed the best choice, with all our supplied window units offering students good stability, thermal insulation, and security performance.
Dexian house was yet another example of contractors, architect, and suppliers working in tandem, meeting the completion date rather effortlessly to house hundreds of London-based students well into the future. The supplied CS68 aluminium windows were fabricated with great attention to detail and delivered promptly to site, being the latest in a long line of successes when in partnership with Donban and HTA.
