Elevating Safety and Style: Blashford Tower
BLASHFORD TOWER CHALCOTS ESTATE
Blashford Tower is one of five towers on the Chalcots Estate in Camden. Blashford Tower, situated at the junction of Adelaide Road and Fellows Road, is a 19-storey block originally built in the late 1960’s. We provided facade engineering services to our client, Graham Construction, through design and construction stages, to support them in refurbishing the tower with a new facade to satisfy current safety fire safety requirements and enhance the quality of the accommodation.

Blashford Tower, situated within the Chalcots Estate in Camden, stands as one of five distinctive towers within this residential development. This iconic building, positioned at the crossroads of Adelaide Road and Fellows Road, comprises 19 stories and houses 130 apartments. Our team provided comprehensive facade engineering expertise to support our client, Graham Construction, throughout the entire design and construction phases of this major refurbishment endeavour. The primary objective of this ambitious refurbishment project was the integration of new glazing and rainscreen cladding, achieved using both unitised facade and rainscreen facade types.
The works entailed the incorporation of new high-performance windows and doors, fire-resistant glazing, and anodized aluminium cladding panels. These enhancements were primarily driven by the imperative to meet the fire safety requirements mandated by current Building Regulations, while also enhancing the overall aesthetics and performance of this significant building within the borough of Camden
