Comprising a 38 storey tower (B1) and a 12 storey block (B2), beneath which is a common single storey basement car park and plant rooms. Building B2 is also bridged over fibre-optic cables and a gas main.
In-situ concrete structures were designed and wind tunnel model testing was conducted to assist in value engineering of the stability systems.
Difficult ground conditions of East London were overcome with secant piling and large diameter piling on to Thanet Sands.
Close tolerance and stringent deflection limits were achieved to facilitate restrictions placed on the structure by specialist cladding unitisation.
