“The complicated façade system was technically very demanding - we needed bespoke detailing to get the best fit for the partitions that also met the required performance criteria.”

Impact Quote
Islington is one of the most desirable areas of London, yet the Bunhill Ward is one of the 20 most deprived in London. Lexicon has provided employment opportunities for contractors and now completed, further job opportunities in the retail and leisure facilities. In addition to the private homes made available, one-third of the units available are allocated to social housing through Affinity Sutton. The Lexicon scheme not only contributes to the London Mayor’s annual home building target of 42,000 homes a year, but ensures that central London remains socially diverse.
