Caledonian secures modular contract for One Charter Street, a 279-key aparthotel in Canary Wharf, London.

The 20 storey building will provide the “gateway” to Canary Wharf’s new district, Wood Wharf.  It has achieved planning consent and will provide 17 floors of high quality volumetric modular serviced apartments over a retail/amenity space in the lower podium levels.

Two full-height concrete cores will provide structural stability and the scheme will be crowned with a rooftop restaurant providing a unique dining experience with prime views over London City.

An open and collaborative approach between Canary Wharf Group, edyn, Caledonian and design partners HTA and Holloway Li has resulted in the development of a high-quality precision manufactured design solution that maximises levels of offsite completion and significantly reduces onsite resource and programme.

The steel framed modules are being designed and manufactured at Caledonian’s 40 acre manufacturing facility in Newark, Nottinghamshire, where Caledonian’s offsite solution enables each room to be completed to a very high standard including fitting of furniture, bathrooms, kitchens and en-suite facilities prior to transport.

This is the latest significant success for Caledonian that underpins continued growth plans and investment in the business and contributes to current secured pipeline in excess of £200m.

Caledonian continues to invest in new systems and technologies to advance precision manufactured techniques and processes, producing products that are over 90% factory complete and actively advancing our design principles towards a Net Zero Carbon future.
