Abstract

Wembley is known for football and for the stadium’s iconic arch, but there’s something else distinctive about this neighbourhood of London: it is home to a growing cluster of buildings built using modular pre-fabrication techniques. This technology, also known as ‘volumetric’, could help speed construction of the new housing London needs. To find out more about it, on 25 May a group of LSE researchers visited Apex Tower, a 29-storey purpose-built student accommodation block being built by contractors Tide Construction and Vision Modular Systems. The visit was organised by Nick Barker of Gravis Capital, which owns the building, and Kieran White of Vision Modular.
