TEN DEGREES, CROYDON

The World’s Tallest Modular Building made with PROBOND® Solutions

Project Overview:

The world’s tallest modular building, standing at an impressive 135 meters and consisting of 1,500 modules, sets a new benchmark in modern construction. Located in London, Ten Degrees is this record-breaking project encompasses a total floor area of 41,819m² and features 546 homes within a pair of 38- and 44-storey towers. Spearheaded by Tide Construction and Vision Modular Systems and designed by architect HTA, the project leveraged cutting-edge techniques such as virtual reality and 3D printing for rapid prototyping and incorporated an angled modular façade.

Challenge:

The sheer scale and innovative nature of this project required meticulous planning and execution, particularly in the supply and application of floor preparation materials. The flooring contractor needed consistent support to manage the just-in-time delivery schedule essential for the smooth running of the installation process. The need for large quantities of materials to be delivered promptly and efficiently was paramount to meet the project’s tight timelines.
