About us

CREATING TOMORROW AND BEYOND

At EcoWorld London, we are creating outstanding and sustainable developments that will stand the test of time.

Our goal is to create vibrant, welcoming places that enhance both the lives of our residents and the communities we’re part of. We don’t leave when the building work finishes either – we’re here for the long haul, working with local businesses and people to help foster strong, flourishing neighbourhoods where everyone’s well-being is considered. We strive for excellence in all aspects of our operations, developing projects that always have liveability and lifestyle at their hearts.

Barking Wharf – Jobs Fair

Barking Wharf – Careers Fair

Our Barking Wharf scheme is an example of our long term commitment. Over 75 people from Barking and Dagenham attended our careers fair at Barking Wharf in 2019 – including the council’s Employment Engagement Officers, Job Centre Plus, and Barking Job Shop who presented available positions within the companies subcontracted on the development, including JRL Civils, UK Facades, JRL Dry-lining and ARK M&E. From the event, a number of people have been offered full-time jobs and work placements on the project with many more scheduled for second round interviews.

WORKING WITH TESCO

EcoWorld London and Tesco are committed working with the community in Barking and Dagenham to ensure Quayside Barking contributes positively to the local area and meets the aspirations of residents in Barking.

Quayside Barking will be managed by ‘apo_’ (a part of_). They will be responsible for looking after the development for decades to come. Their ambition is to help the community grow, add vibrancy and support ‘togetherness’ and ensure its success within Barking.

Apo currently manage Barking Wharf, located east of the Quayside site, across the river Roding. Since Apo Barking’s opening, Apo have held a number of events to support local individuals and the community. In August 2021 Apo held a Street Food market supporting local traders as well as a live music event showcasing local artists.
