Brick-faced finish in Roehampton student residence

Precast specialist Decomo worked main contractor Geoffrey Osborne and MJP Architects on a new brick-clad student accommodation scheme at the University of Roehampton in south-west London. 

The company designed, manufactured and installed 610 precast concrete panels, faced with rusticated Marziale bricks, supplied by Wienerberger,  along with 206 acid etched copings.

The panels, typically weighing 8,000kg, were fixed back to the in-situ concrete structure using bespoke engineered fixings. Decomo fitted insulation to the panels in the factory and installed cavity barriers on site  to achieve acoustic and fire performance requirements, and added  panel-to-panel mastic joints.
