The Robinson

CASE STUDY

E05 became the first plot in Europe to have robotics deployed for construction purposes

A hotbed for innovation

E05 The Robinson comprises 458 new homes across three blocks ranging in height from 10 to 21 storeys and will be complete in summer 2021. 

Sisk used slip form concrete on the site, a method which involves concrete being poured into a continuously moving form, allowing contractors to build vertically. The technique was used on two concrete cores, one of which at 22-storeys high.

Off-site construction

Sisk selected a precast concrete architectural façade with a composite window solution. This was the first time that architectural precast panels have been used at Wembley Park. 

The panels reduced the time spent constructing the façade on-site, removing the need for scaffolding, providing enhanced quality control and reducing the volume of labour on site. 

Over 1,600 panels were manufactured off site before being installed via a crane at the E05 plot.

Digital technology

Sisk has invested significantly to provide its project delivery team with the right tools and knowledge to get the best out of BIM and digitisation. This has been driven through its Digital Project Delivery (DPD) approach.

    By using 4D planning as a virtual construction rehearsal tool, Sisk has managed its programmes much more effectively

    Sustainable solutions are at the heart of E05

    Envac

    Canada Gardens comprised 93.5% total waste from site recycled off site and is Envac integrated. This is an innovative system that sucks waste and recycling down underground tunnels at 70kph to a collection centre at the edge of Wembley Park, minimising the use of refuse lorries and negating the use of ground-floor bin storage facilities for residents.

    Bug hotel

    Alongside our drylining partners Platt Reilly, the Sisk site management team constructed a bug hotel. This now has a permanent home in the landscaping of Wembley Park.

    Coffee grounds

    Our E05 team partnered with their canteen company to give used coffee grounds to staff, so they could bring them home for use in their gardens. 

    In addition to reducing waste, used coffee grounds make great fertiliser or can be used in a compost pile.
