Our largest UK project to date features a complex installation next to one of London’s busiest stations.

International Way is an aesthetically dynamic, community-oriented residential development in the Stratford district of London. It is also Staticus’ largest UK project so far, featuring two 26-storey towers that will together have 380 homes. We are designing, producing, and installing 22,300 m² of façade for this project. Our production team is working methodically and rigorously to manage the scale and complexity of this project. We are producing 15,732 m² of unitised cladding, 1,910 m² of fixed windows and sliding doors, and 4,650 m² of other cladding, along with fire safety glass balustrades up to the roof level and other features. The façade uses specially developed brick-faced GRC cladding columns—this is the first time we have used brick slip GRC cladding in a project—and all cladding will have a PPC finish. With BREEAM – Excellent the target for this project, along with a strong focus on biodiversity and green space, sustainability is at the forefront.

The location next to Stratford International Station, one of London’s busiest stations, has influenced International Way’s design. Aesthetically, the project explores the concept of “tracks and movement.” The location also poses major logistical challenges for our team. Its proximity to the railway means Health and Safety requirements for installation are at the highest level possible.

Our team is successfully navigating these technical challenges in production and installation. Production started in late Autumn 2023, and the installation team was on site before Christmas to begin work. Both teams will be working throughout 2024, with project completion planned for early 2025.

The architectural vision and location of this project make it exciting in its own right. For us, it is also significant as another major step in our development within the UK market. As our largest project in the UK so far, and with a large amount of complexity, it demonstrates the trust major UK clients have in us. Reaching this point is the result of many years’ work building our presence in this market, but is also just the start of our next chapter in the UK market as we aim to serve the largest clients and deliver the biggest projects.
