Showcase student block opens adjacent Wembley Stadium

25/05/17

A £50m development offering purpose-built accommodation for students from Middlesex University opened at the end of last year in a newly regenerated area adjacent to the world-famous Wembley Stadium.

Olympic Way is a 19-storey showcase property for developer, Unite Students. It provides 629 en-suite rooms and 70 studio rooms with designated kitchens and dining/living areas which are shared between residents. Communal areas include a common room, a generous study area and an outside terrace with unbeatable views of the iconic Wembley arch and across north London.

The scheme also features a double-height atrium, separate reception, office, refuse storage and plant space facilities plus commercial space. Students enjoy high speed Wi-Fi in all rooms, 24 hour security cover and on-site laundry facilities.

Designed by Hadfield Cawkwell Davidson, the development is well located near high quality amenities and is just a bus ride from Middlesex's Hendon campus and a short tube journey from central London.

Bureau Veritas Building Control UK provided full Approved Inspector support to the project team. It was appointed at an early stage in the design process and agreed a complex fire strategy which allowed the installation of a single staircase to serve the multi-storey structure. The final strategy included enhanced mechanical smoke ventilation to depressurise the corridors on either side of the stairwell.

Olympic Way is one of five recent developments for Unite Students, joining Causeway View in Aberdeen, Gosford Gate in Coventry, Stapleton House in London and Greetham Street in Portsmouth.

Main contractor to the scheme was the RG Group. Project manager was TowerEight.
