360 Barking is set across 4 cylindrical towers located in the heart of Barking. 195 are private apartments and 96 are on the shared ownership scheme. As part of the regeneration plan, 360 Barking will become an icon to the area alongside the £2 billion of investment that will eventually bring 6,000 new homes, smarter shops and an art film cinema.
Alloy Fabweld manufactured and installed these unique teardrop balconies creating the main feature on this stunning 4-tower circular residential project. Every apartment has its own private ecodek® balcony (or winter garden) and access to one of the communal, landscaped roof terraces.
The solid cross-section of ecodek® boards lent itself perfectly to this project and the curved nature of the balcony design, as ease of cutting the boards was perfect. In addition, the ability to order bespoke lengths from Ecodek was a clear winner for this project, where the lengths manufactured included 7m, 5.73m, 4.9m, 3.75m and 1.9m! This meant very little waste on site, a huge plus for a construction project, and the minimal waste that was generated was purchased back by Ecodek and recycled back into new product!
