Apex House, Wembley, London

Apex House

Apex House is the tallest modular building in Europe, made up of 29 self-supporting modules. This 28 storey student housing landmark was constructed off site using the Vision Modular modules, then craned into position at the site. The offsite construction method enabled the build to be quick, efficient and was completed within a year.

Patrick Ryan Associates provided the structural design and calculations for the structural fixing framework for terracotta tiling panels onto the constructed modules.
