S9, The International Quarter

The International Quarter is one of London's largest new mixed-use developments.

Overview

Continuing with our ongoing work at The International Quarter in Stratford, we were contracted by Lendlease to complete the external works and landscaping package for the S9 building.

Maylim’s remit included all underground utility work to feed into S9. The utilities previously installed in phase 1 and 2 were connected and future use ducts were installed ready for the subsequent building construction. Sub-base, concrete slab and slot drains were also installed across the public realm.

The paving scheme consists of Indian sandstone and Chinese granite; tying in with the earlier phases of the project. Buff coloured tarmac was laid to the carriageways at the front and rear of the building as well as a resin footpath, also to the rear.

Pre-cast concrete benches with timber tops are situated across the scheme. Ample seating is also provided by ‘The Outdoor Living Room’; providing a place for flexible outdoor working and socialising. This unique structure is a collaboration between YOU&ME and Cooke Fawcett Architects. Together, with landscape architects Gustafson, Porter + Bowman they have created this public realm pavilion, seamlessly immersed in the surrounding landscape scheme.

The soft landscaping package included the planting of 26 mature trees, a series of smaller trees and a diverse planting scheme of herbaceous plants, grasses, shrubs and box hedging throughout.

By night the project is lit by a bespoke lighting scheme. Our project team installed lamp columns, catenary lighting, under-bench lighting and lighting bollards throughout the public realm.
