Press Room: Ahmarra completes external joinery project at former docks area

Ahmarra completes external joinery project at former docks area

Ahmarra has helped the regeneration of the old East India Docks in London by providing external decking and purpose-made Iroko seating and cladding.

Decked seating area

The complex of five buildings around a central canal created during the 80s is being remodelled and renovated to meet present-day standards and to inject new life into this forgotten corner.

It was felt that the large expanse of water needed a “Garden Force” style makeover consisting of new platforms and covered decks, where office workers and the passing public could relax in more pleasant surroundings. This objective has been achieved and the revitalised area has received high praise.

New to the complex are shops, restaurants, cafes and a gym that add a vibrancy of the area.

This project forms part of a large-scale development called ‘Republic’ with Ahmarra previously completing a 10-storey atrium for the building, which has since been named Commercial Project of the Year at the Structural Timber Awards.

Main Contractor, Galliford Try, selected Ahmarra as specialist sub-contractor having completed a number of successful projects together in the past. “We are delighted to be associated with such a prestigious project and hope to continue our successful relationship with Galliford Try and the architect, Studio RHE,” commented Richard Panrucker, Ahmarra Installation’s Director.
