Project Name: University Of East London, Dockland Campus
Location: East London
Contractor: HA Marks Construction
Completion Date: April 2022
Products Used: - Bespoke Podium Seating
As part of a substantial refurbishment project spanning multiple University of East London campuses, Bailey Streetscene have supplied the Docklands Campus with a number of colossal bespoke hardwood timber podium seating units.
The project, lead by HA Marks Construction, is now nearing completion and will see a full internal and external renovation across Docklands and Stratford.
Situated at the entrance to the Students’ Union, the podium seating supplied by Bailey Streetscene creates an inviting social space acting as a focal point for casual meetings as well as University events.
The L shaped unit sits atop a tiered platform that overlooks the arriving and departing flights from London City Airport that can be seen from across the water.
Given the scale and sheer amount of timber involved - each unit was fully assembled at Bailey Street Furniture Groups’ Adlington Warehouse prior to dispatch to reduce any complications during installation.
The podiums were then packaged and delivered in assembled and clad segments which were easily joined together and aligned on site.
This waterfront campus in the historic Royal Docks provides a modern, well-equipped learning environment, with modern lecture theatres and seminar rooms and with the recent opening of the Elizabeth Line is easily connected with central London.
The Docklands is one of three campuses that Bailey Streetscene has worked on for this project which will be covered in further detail in the coming months.
