Flagship Development Showcase video of City North

Alloy Fabweld showcase their expertise in design, planning & fabrication solutions at the £7.5M City North development


We are excited to share our video showcase of all of the varied and specialist metalwork solutions we supported Telford Homes with over the last 2 years for the Flagship City North development. By using our many years of expertise along with offsite manufacturing to provide many benefits across the City North project.


Our unique approach for the City North development was in creating the balconies with the Brise soleil in situ, this increased the speed of installation, which also reduced the time impacted on the City North development.


We worked to overcome the difficulties of building above a live underground station ensuring that we provided complete care and safety, by working closely with TFL and Telford Homes in the organisation and planning of the development to minimise disruption and risk to the public with access to the station.


Furthermore, we provided solutions to overcome logistics issues, such as having to transport items down a very narrow lane that fed the City North site.


Alloy Fabweld‘a team worked safely within the Covid restrictions in place at the time, whilst still meeting important deadlines for key project deliverables. We did this by utilising our logistics experience on how best to work within these constraints and utilised specialist lifting techniques and transported the items from our green manufacturing site in Gosfield with due care and attention.


More added value benefits were delivered on the project by manufacturing many of the items offsite within our carbon-neutral off-grid large-scale engineering production facility.


Our engineering and manufacturing in-house specialists helped to create a unique design for the elegantly oval-shaped building by enhancing the oval shape with a curved and faceted Brise soleil.

Telford Homes are putting City North on the map


The whole project delivery was carefully considered in terms of its design and construction by the Telford Homes team: the two towers are specifically designed to act as anchoring points for Finsbury Park, an area that was previously considered as a place to transit through rather than spend time in which will put City North on the map to become more of a pinnacle location.


City North is set across four sleek and stylish buildings including two awe-inspiring towers, the penthouse offers the very best views over Canary Wharf, the City on one side and Hampstead Heath and Alexandra Palace on the other. The scheme delivered 355 homes, there is also a sizeable space of 11,781 sq.m (126,809 sq.ft) of useable commercial space with large retail brands taking their place.
