John Sisk & Son has completed its 10th construction project at Wembley Park in London for developer Quintain. A recent topping out ceremony to mark this key milestone at the innovative Plot E05 Build to Rent development on the Eastern Lands of Wembley Park, coincided with 15 years of Sisk, PRP Architects and Quintain working in partnership at the 85-acre regeneration site.

Comprising 458 new homes across three blocks ranging in height from 10 to 21 storeys, the E05 site has been a hotbed for innovation during its construction. Some examples include:

* E05 became the first plot in Europe to have robotics deployed for construction purposes. A ‘Material Unit Lift Enhancer’ (MULE) was used to enhance the productivity of block laying work during the construction of the project’s multi-storey car park.

* Sisk used slip form concrete on the site, a method which involves concrete being poured into a continuously moving form, allowing contractors to build vertically. The technique was used on two concrete cores, one of which was 22-storeys high.

* Sisk selected a pre-cast concrete architectural façade with a composite window solution. This was the first time that architectural pre-cast panels have been used at Wembley Park. The panels reduce the time spent on site, removing the need for scaffolding, providing enhanced quality control and reducing the volume of labour on site. Over 1,600 the pre-cast masonry panels were manufactured off site before being installed via a crane at the E05 plot.

Since 2004, Sisk has delivered a range of impressive projects at Wembley Park for Quintain including the 472 apartment Emerald Gardens development, London Designer Outlet, the Hilton London Wembley Hotel and the reconfiguration and refurbishment of the Grade 2 listed Wembley Arena (now The SSE Arena, Wembley).

Commenting at the ceremony, Ajaz Shafi Managing Director UK South, John Sisk & Son, said: “It is great to have reached this key milestone on E05 alongside Quintain. We have now been working together successfully at Wembley Park for 15 years, delivering high quality, innovative projects and this is the final piece of the jigsaw in the Eastern Lands part of the masterplan. At Sisk, we are committed to innovation and it is great to work alongside a company like Quintain who allow us to bring new ways of thinking to developments. We are looking forward to continuing to work together with Quintain on future projects.”

Matt Voyce, Executive Director of Construction at Quintain, said: “Throughout our 15 year relationship, Sisk has become an extremely valuable member of our contractor framework and we look forward to working with them again in the future.”

Richard Harvey, Partner at PRP Architects, said: “Our long-standing collaboration of over 15 years with Quintain and Sisk at Wembley Park has been second to none, embracing innovation and quality through design to shape a vibrant and inclusive community for the residents of Brent.”

The 458 homes will all be managed by Tipi, Quintain’s lifestyle-led rental homes brand with an all-inclusive offering.
