Unite Stratford One: Case Study
WoodBlocX has helped to create an outdoor space at one of London’s most desirable student apartment complexes. The site incorporates more than 1,000 flats, state of the art facilities and dedicated areas for study and relaxation.
The clients brief was to provide a practical and functional outdoor space across the building’s rooftop podiums and terrace, which reflected the design and ethos of the rest of the site.
WoodBlocX components are manufactured in five different sizes and work in the same way as bricks, in addition, any capping and angled parts are pre-mitred, which saves installers significant build time and eliminates the need for sawing, drilling and disposing of waste, a huge plus point for large installations in confined spaces.
Using the layout design for the raised beds and seating, WoodBlocX’s design team worked with the plans to calculate the materials needed and used our expertise to advise the team on the design.
The installation of the raised beds took place at the final stage of the apartment build, before the site was opened to students. Cranes were used to lift the pallets of WoodBlocX and other materials to the higher levels and WoodBlocX and Urban Planter’s install teams worked together to build the 10 raised beds and over 20 separate seating areas.
