IQL's Pavilion Tops Out After Just 14 Weeks Of Superstructure Works

International Quarter London (IQL), the joint project between LCR and multinational construction firm Lendlease, has ‘topped out’ on the pavilion at the heart of the 22-acre development.

The landmark building, designed by ACME and made almost entirely from cross and glue-laminated timber, has reached its highest point and taken shape at a rapid pace since the project broke ground in February earlier this year.

The frame began arriving on site during the summer and took 14 weeks to be assembled, with every piece arriving ready to be slotted into place in an impressive show of organisation and efficiency.

When complete, the 10,000 sq. ft. pavilion will house restaurants, retail and commercial units and a rooftop terrace and bar with views across Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park towards the London skyline.

Andrew Tobin, Project Director of IQL, Lendlease said: “We’re very proud to be able to bring this innovative building to Stratford, and of the part it will play in bringing together our local communities within IQL and the wider area. We’re also looking forward to announcing more details in due course regarding the impressive dining experience that will be available within this remarkable space.”

IQL, the £2.4 bn development at the heart of Stratford, will become a new business hub for London, providing around four million sq. ft of Grade A office space, as well as homes and a range of leisure facilities.

As a gateway to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, IQL will be a thriving community and employment hub, including major employers such as British Council, Cancer Research, FCA and Transport for London.
