Albion Way, Brent
Just completed (September 2020) is Albion Way, Brent: a stunning new 15-floor accommodation building for 245 students on behalf of Watkin Jones. Dorplan supplied a total of 484 doors with ironmongery using our exclusive ‘Expa-fit’ system which reduces fitting time by around 30% per door.
Most of the doors, in a beautiful crown-cut oak veneer, were bedroom entrance doors. These needed to be specially recessed to accommodate access control locks, for which Dorplan worked alongside access control company TLJ. Also part of the project were fire compartment corridor doors and doors for the ground-floor communal area. All doors were matched to meet the design brief and were delivered in phases over 6 months.
This project is the latest in a series of buildings Dorplan has supplied for Watkin Jones and we are looking forward to our next project with them, a new student accommodation building in Wilder Street, Bristol.
Watkin Jones project manager, Elliott Robinson, said: “Rob and the team at Dorplan have been great to deal with from start to finish. Having worked with Dorplan on a number of projects, I have been very impressed with the level of expertise offered. From original enquiry to delivery, Dorplan have given intelligent advice and excellent service.”
