Architects and specifiers across the UK can now utilise a hub of innovation, inspiration and ingenuity while designing and planning upcoming projects with the launch of Ibstock plc’s ‘The I-Studio’.
Located in the heart of the Capital’s architectural circuit, Clerkenwell, The I-Studio will provide the UK’s thriving building community with an interactive space to facilitate the collaboration process. Professionals can visit the space upon appointment to meet with its leading team of designers and utilise its software to visualise how a future project could look if constructed with Ibstock’s extensive clay brick and concrete building product portfolio.
Using its product selector, architects can select from over 218 brick slips and project their drawings onto the wall to experience the exterior and interior aesthetics with each style of brick as well as the bond pattern and mortar colour. Ibstock’s experienced designers support the interactive session, provide insight into which products would best meet the requirements of each project, whilst also improving the building’s overall sustainability.
The company’s entire product offering can be viewed at The I-Studio, including walling solutions from Ibstock Brick and Ibstock Kevington, concrete roofing solutions from Forticrete, rail and infrastructure products from Anderton; and fencing, landscaping and building products from Supreme.
Joe Hudson, CEO of Ibstock, said: “Ibstock is at the heart of building, and our new showroom, The I-Studio, is a source of inspiration, innovation and influence for professionals involved in all aspects of the UK construction sector. As the UK’s leading manufacturer of clay bricks and concrete building products, We are committed to supporting the industry in designing and building more efficient constructions that push the boundaries of design and our new showroom is a key facilitator in helping to achieve this.
“We welcome all professionals to visit The I-Studio to meet with our team of designers to gain insight into all Ibstock has to offer the industry and look forward to continuing to develop strong relationships with existing and potential clients, both in London and across the UK.”
