Comprising 13 and 21 storeys of residential concrete frame build directly over the Northern Line underground tube tunnels.
Ground movement and three dimensional tunnelling analysis was used to justify 900 diameter piles without sleeves alongside the new Northern Line extension running tunnels which run directly beneath the buildings.
£500,000 was saved by PTA reinforcing the piles instead of steel tube sleeving them which was proposed by other engineers.
