Building Wood Wharf for Canary Wharf | Case Study

Covid 19 Update Read More

We are open for business as usual (although there here is nothing usual about this situation) with our transport company (Brooks Transport) who are designated by the government as critical to the covid response. We are still delivering direct to door or site, (however collections or visits to the warehouse are not possible.) Our IT systems allow us to work from home so our staff are protected. Please Call or Email Us for samples or orders. Our factories are back to full capacity and the supply chain is operating effectively which can be seen here. As a trade supplier we have a minimum requirement of 50m2 for any samples and supplies. Please call 01666 504015 if you require less. For Government advice please click here. Even with these steps we have made, we must pull together, support one another, and get through this as a group, a family, and feel proud to say to our wider community we are critical to the Covid-19 response, and we will support it for as long as we are able. Stay safe, stay well, look after yourself, and each other.

Building Wood Wharf for Canary Wharf

  • Project - A1 Building Wood Wharf (the circular one)
  • Client - Canary Wharf Group
  • Executive Architects - Adamson
  • Main Contractor - Canary Wharf Contractors
  • Wood Flooring Supplier - The Solid Wood Flooring Company

Canary Wharf

We developed two engineered wood floors for the above project and advised on the subfloor build up and installation to ensure a trouble free fit out. This project will follow on from Newfoundland Tower at Wood Wharf and we are currently supplying the engineered flooring for the marketing suites at level 31 Canada Square for the A1 buidling at Wood Wharf.


The products they have chosen were initially designed by Goddard Littlefair and we worked with the designers to create two unique pallets for the 1 bed and two bed apartments. This is a new product and we do not have fitted pictures yet, but the images show one carton laid out. The two wood floor product codes are TW E731 and TW E753. These boards were similar to some of our antique and herringbone colours but the designers wanted a slightly different hue to the colour. You can see with one of the images how we control batches and colours. The TW E731 was based on our antique board but they wanted it light brushed with a matt UV oil finish rather than a lacquer.


This case study shows how flexible we are and that we can accommodate any requirement where clients are looking for unique floors
