Leamouth South Marketing Suite

The Orchard Dry Dock is situated between Orchard Place and the River Thames, close to Trinity Buoy Wharf. The recent redevelopment of City Island to the north provides a new pedestrian bridge directly to Canning Town stations (London Underground and DLR).

The Dry Dock was backfilled in the 1970’s and the area and a number of wharfside buildings were replaced with light industrial sheds. 

The marketing suite will be the first building marking the redevelopment of Leamouth South and seeks to reinforce the existing character while providing a new link through to the River Thames.  The existing light industrial shed sits parallel to the Dry Dock and has been partially stripped back to expose the steel frame.

O'Connor Sutton Cronin chose MAP for our experience and expertise. A challenging project, we helped transform the industial shed into a new marketing suite to promote the extensive residential development. Through careful design and product selection, we were able to reinforce the existing character and industrial history of the docks and provide a ventilation system that was inherently balanced and met the architect's vision perfectly.

O'Connor Sutton Cronin chose to work with MAP for our experience and expertise. A challenging project, the former dry dock and wharf was transformed into a new marketing suite to promote an extensive residential development of the surrounding site - this included 804 new homes all built facing directly onto the Thames.

The architect's vision was to balance the existing structure - an industrial shed, with an outdoors inside theme running through the whole development. The difficulty arose from the constraints of the existing building, against the demanding requirements of the new development. A continuous duct ran around the lower floor with double height space. This needed to be evenly conditioned, without the use of additional devices.

Through careful design and product selection, we specified LDB12/8, a high induction linear diffuser. The diffusers allowed for optimum distribution and comfort. The successful design met the architect's vision and reduced the need for expensive and visually impactful secondary devices.
