Dalston has a new underground station, and above ground, M Price is installing the total facade on a very sought-after residential scheme.
The development of the multibillion-pound East London line extension through the capital has created a real buzz around locations across the city that are now better connected than ever before. One of these areas is Dalston in north London. With a brand new station opening just last year, Dalston has seen a huge surge in activity and interest. And where activity goes, homeowners follow.
M Price played a central and integral role as facade contractor on this multimillion-pound residential and mixed-use scheme that is being built directly above the new Dalston Junction Underground station. A mixture of two-, three- and four-bedroom luxury apartments, this residential project is one of the most exciting currently under development in the capital. And certainly Dalston Square is a development with some of the most convenient transport links.
The striking cladding is instrumental in ensuring that this building makes a real impact – setting it apart from others around it. Around 21,000m worth of cladding panels were required to bring this scheme to life.
The project is divided into two phases, the North and South Blocks. The Dalston Junction North Blocks have now been complete, on time and on budget, and the South Blocks construction program has been accelerated as a result of such positive feedback.
Colin Chapman says: “In the current market we find ourselves continually challenged by our clients to deliver projects within ever tighter timescales, also to assist in getting the project started by tackling budgetary issues head-on and working without clients’ technical teams to deliver real-life and viable value engineering options. This was undoubtedly achieved on the project at Dalston.”
