Key facts & Challenges

Elephant Road is part of the regeneration of Elephant and Castle - one of the largest regeneration projects in the UK. This phase is a mixed-use development across three buildings which are physically linked by a podium structure. The podium structure contains a Sainsbury’s supermarket, cinema, three retail units, three restaurants and cinema alongside basement car parking.

The three towers comprise:

Northern Building: 18 storey tower for student accommodation

Western Building: 23 storey tower for apartments

Southern Building: 14 storey tower for apartments

Siniat was appointed by the external facade contractor, Deepdale Solutions, to provide external sheathing board, whilst Astins appointed Siniat to provide the internal drylining package.

Installation Phase

This site had changed ownership and had been contentious for many years. The main challenges at the installation phase included: - site constraints: three towers on a 1 acre site under construction simultaneously - meet a very tight timescale of 20 months - incorporate part unitised construction into the curtain walling - meet all of the performance criteria for thermal performance, fire protection, acoustics, sustainability ambitions and visual appearance.
