South Bank Tower - Roof Terrace Garden - Composite Decking

ecodek - South Bank Tower, London

This luxurious redevelopment, situated in the vibrant heart of London’s South Bank, epitomises high-end residential and office spaces in the city. As a prime residential development it comprises 173 luxury apartments and 11 additional storeys, was developed by CIT and designed in collaboration with Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, with landscaping by Frosts Landscape Construction Ltd.

ecodek® was primarily specified on this project as the client required a low maintenance, hard wearing product that had to be tough enough to withstand the weight of a BMU (Building Maintenance Unit) being regularly driven over it whilst also maintain good slip resistance properties.

Due to the extreme loading from the BMU, the ecodek® Technical Team carried out load & indentation tests to ensure the decking would not mark or deform in use. The roof terrace garden at the top of the tower was designed to a very modern and high-end specification, and the materials chosen needed to be in keeping with this. ecodek® blends in beautifully with the hardwood furniture, aluminium, stainless steel and glass structures.
