Coldharbour Lane, London SW9
This on-going project involves the conversion and enlargement of an old 2-story office building into a 5-story block of apartments. The concrete roof, floors, stairs and lift shafts had to be demolished. New foundations were then constructed within the existing building and indeed outside to facilitate the erection of a new steel frame.The New structure steel frame was then fitted into position within the existing building to facilitate the later stages of construction to follow. The site is located 3.5m from live rail lines and this together with difficult site conditions and restrictions resulted in the requirement for very detailed site management.
