Description:

Nova Victoria is an architecturally striking development on a grand scale creating a vibrant new link between Victoria Station, Buckingham Palace and the Royal Parks. It follows the redevelopment of Victoria Station. The development consists of 170 apartments of the highest specification at the centre of one of London’s most prestigious neighbourhoods.

 

PROJECT BRIEF

We were approached to carry out the complete delivery of the floor build-up on the Nova Victoria development because of a proven track record of delivering on complex residential schemes in central London and in particular, following the successful completion of Kingsgate House. The project involved developing a fully approved and tested floor construction within a very thin build-up using a screed-based system that complied with all the necessary residential acoustic requirements.

SOLUTION

The design and build contract gave us the flexibility to develop a viable solution within the restriction floor build-up zone, as well as taking into consideration the varied tolerances that every concrete and screed are subjected to. The process involved using independent specialists to assist in the testing and sign off process and satisfy the complete team of the innovative and robust proposal. We were also able to successfully complete the programme within the short time frame and overcome the challenging logistical location (just next to Victoria Station).

 

RESULTS

We are glad to report a successful completion of the works during the early part of 2016 and are proud to have been associated with such a phenomenal development in a prime location. The overall development value was over £2bn, a major project that will remain iconic for many years to come. We continue to enjoy the working relationships with the Nova Victoria team on other prime residential developments.

 

LAND SECURITIES TESTIMONIAL

“We have worked with WMS on two of our flagship developments; Nova Victoria and Kingsgate House. We first worked together on Nova for 170 super-prime apartments, they were introduced to the scheme at a late stage and worked tirelessly to keep the project to program and impressed us all with their commitment, speed and flexibility. In particular I have valued WMS’ positive and supportive approach at client handover stage. We work with companies like WMS to uphold the level of service we pride ourselves in providing to our clients."
