World’s tallest modular tower to be built in Croydon

Croydon planners have approved a twin-tower scheme of build-to-rent flats near the East Croydon station. Tide Construction will build a 44 & 38-storey scheme that will comprise of 546- flat towers, designed by HT Design.

Situated on the former Essex House, the scheme will be a trailblazer for modular construction methods, as it will be based on an off-site manufacturing system, developed by Tide. The system is described as the UK’s largest volumetric manufacturer of structural modules, a forward-thinking method of building that minimizes construction-generated pollution.

The construction method will comprise 150 modules and won’t require an environmental impact assessment, according to Croydon’s planning department.

Estimated to be worth over £150m the development will essentially be an extremely tall prefabricated building exclusively for built-to-rent purposes, like the 28-story Apex House in Wembley.

Christy Hayes, chief executive of Tide Construction said:

“This project is a huge milestone for both us as a company and for modular developments as an innovative, modern method of construction. This development emphasises the true potential of modular construction as a genuine solution to the UK’s housing crisis, where high-quality homes can be delivered at pace in sought after urban areas. Both the government and industry are realising the benefits of modular construction, with 101 George Street being a pivotal moment for modular construction in the UK.”
