PAD Contracts has completed the manufacture and installation of a range of architectural metalworks for The Pavilion at The International Quarter (IQL). Due to open in quarter two of 2021 the striking Pavilion is a prominent feature on the skyline within IQL and set to be a social hub.
Designed by ACME architects, the amphitheatre-style Pavilion is largely constructed from sustainable timber. The 10,000 sq. ft. pavilion at Endeavour Square has been designed to provide a shared space to visit, eat, drink and socialise with a selection of bars and eateries to choose from. D&D London, the world-renowned restaurant and bar group, has signed an agreement to launch its latest dining concept within the Pavilion at International Quarter London (IQL).
The pioneering building is divided over three floors and features a ground floor café and brasserie, first floor restaurant, and a rooftop bar. The building includes an impressive roof terrace that provides impressive views across the Olympic Park.
PAD Contracts completed a broad range of balustrade solutions for the building’s outdoor spaces and stairs. The timber constructed building features steel railings by PAD that span out from ground level upwards to first floor, enveloping the perimeter, and running to the rear of the building and splitting into two rear staircases.
On the left-hand side of the first-floor balcony area the balustrading features triple laminated low iron glass infill panels. The steel railing with cylindrical spindles continues on the second floor, providing a safe and secure barrier to the exterior terrace area. PAD Contracts also supplied and installed timber capping for elements of the balustrading, along with ‘warm to touch’ special coatings. In addition, the railings feature high grade galvanising that is shot blast prior to finishing to give a thicker 125microns for a longer life span.
Colin Ayres, Managing Director, PAD Contracts comments.

In addition to The Pavilion, we have completed sculptural artwork, a range of architectural metalwork solutions at 2 Redman Place and external staircases at S5, all at IQL Stratford”
