Revolutionising urban development

In the heart of White City, London, a groundbreaking project is shaping the future of urban development –  EdCity. Working with main contractor Bowmer + Kirkland, architects tp bennett, and specialist Stofix installers, Caxton Facades, EdCity is a testament to collaboration and innovation. Stofix products was utilised throughout block C of this project – a 95,000 sq ft office building of the highest grade, complete with terraces, meeting spaces, and a crowning top-floor penthouse.

Distinctive building design and structure

From the outset, EdCity faced unique challenges that demanded an innovative approach. The project required a lightweight solution due to its distinctive building design and structure. In the heart of London’s White City, getting the logistics right was vital. To address this, a “just-in-time” delivery system was implemented, ensuring materials arrived precisely when needed.

In keeping with the surroundings

tp bennett’s vision called for a grey rustic/handmade appearance brick that was in keeping with the surrounding developments. A striking white detail band course was essential to complement the concrete banding on neighbouring buildings. Stofix stepped up to meet these design demands.
