The Islington Square project is the redevelopment of a former Royal Mail Sorting Office, Public House and ancillary buildings. The project is a residentially led development comprising a total of 371 residential units with retail spread over 7no. blocks along with a car park to block A.


The scaffolding was constructed from Tube, Fittings and Beamwork and totals over 22,045m2.
