Project details: 
Eastside Quarter is a development of new apartments in Bexleyheath, south London. The scheme provides over 500 new homes for the area and features car parking facilities, a concierge service, gym and residential podium and roof gardens spread over two high-rise blocks with social spaces and retail shops. The roof top gardens are situated on different levels across the two buildings to provide much needed green space for this urban development as well as a spectacular view across London for residents to enjoy.

Project challenges: 
Furnitubes worked with the landscape contractors to provide landscaping solutions and project management for the roof top development on both blocks (A and B) of Eastside Quarter. Presented with the common challenge of transporting to the roof tops, the project also required A fire rated free standing planters to be installed, as part of the roof top design.

Furnitubes designed and manufactured a number of AKRI retaining steel wall planters with ped and tray system to negate the issues of the rooftop being A-fire rated. AKRI, manufactured from recycled steel, was the ideal solution for the roof-top scheme; the lightweight panels were easily transported and installed on site. The AKRI tray and ped system is a unique offering as it has been designed to fit the dimensions of, and support each planter individually, creating a self contained planter while still allowing for drainage. AKRI’s ped and tray system also allows the planters to be left freestanding, sitting on a layer of waterproof membrane. Decking and pergolas were installed and benches were later retro-fitted to the planters to seamlessly integrate seating, manufactured in all steel to accommodate the required A fire rating, creating stunning landscaped roof tops across both buildings in the heart of a bustling city.
