Impressive running track graces London skyline

  • 30 Aug 2017

Sports flooring specialists CONICA has risen to new heights, supplying an impressive running track on top of London’s award-winning Whitecollar Factory.

The newly refurbished office building houses globally renowned brands and is already firmly established as an award-winning example of creative contemporary design, securing BREAM 2014 Outstanding status for sustainable building in design and function, as well as the MIPIM UK Visionary Building of the Year award 2016.

Designed by architects Allford Hall Monaghan Morris, the futuristic design extends across every inch of the building, culminating in a running track encircling the top of the building and a roof-top leisure area offering panoramic views of the city.

With its height and exposure, making sure the unique sport and recreation areas don’t degrade with wind and sun damage was a core concern, as CONICA’s representative on this project, Michael Davis, explained.

“Exposure to the elements in a project like this is unavoidable.

“So, making sure the surfacing was able to withstand strong winds and the heat and UV exposure from the sun was crucial. With its strong adhesion and flexibility, CONICA’s single-layer EPDM (the surface used) was an ideal solution to this.”
