Ebbsfleet Garden City is a unique development currently under construction which will comprise 15,000 new homes, 30,000 jobs and 45,000m2 of commercial real estate.
In order to bring the garden city to life, the development corporation approached us to create a marketing suite within the main Ebbsfleet International train station. We surrounded the internal walls with floor to ceiling graphic panels of the architect’s visualisations, installed a 4mx3m model of the development, a 65” interactive touchscreen table and separate glass office.
The 65” interactive table lets visitors view the whole garden city, exploring the new housing developments, schools, parkland and commercial space as well as watch 3d flythroughs and aerial footage of the whole area.
The marketing suite will be at the station for three years and with almost 1.5 million commuters a year passing through the station it has already proved to be very popular with a constant influx of visitors.
"Working with POPcomms has been an absolute pleasure. You get a real one-to-one service that you don’t get from other companies and nothing is too much trouble – in fact, they go above and beyond.
Their real skill is listening to the idea and then delivering it absolutely perfectly. Our first communication was over the phone but they absolutely nailed the brief, producing ideas and visuals that when I first saw them confirmed to me that this was the right company to work with.
This was a complex project and they were able to cut through a mountain of red tape with external companies to deliver. And they delivered on time and in budget.
Quite simply, they deliver and they deliver better than anyone else in their field."
