Background:

Mansell have completed the Design & Build project to extend UCL’s student accommodation by 3 storeys on the roof of John Dodgson House.

The 1960’s, 5-storey block was not initially capable of withstanding the extra load imposed by the vertical extension.  MNP designed an elegant and cost-effective structural framework, threaded through the building onto new piled foundations, using complex 3D analysis and modelling. Prefabricated bedroom pods were lifted onto the roof with a 200t crane.

Status:
Completed.
