August 2017 - September 2019 - £4.7M
Professional Team - CBRE/WT Patnership/Watermans/Cantillon
The project was located on the corner of Curzon Street/Bolton Street in London’s West End. The area is extremely busy and immediately adjacent to two pedestrian crossings. The building had party walls with two residential properties one of which is grade II listed. There are also commercial offices in close proximity to the front and rear elevations of the site.
Our team worked with the WCC Environmental and Highways department to agree a Site Environmental Management Plan which contained a section 61 and maintained all pedestrian footpaths and the highway open and largely unrestricted.
As demolition works progressed several challenges arose due to the unknown nature of the existing buildings and our neighbours Party Walls supports, as a result of this our scope increased to include the following works.
Challenges overcome by the team
1. Designing new temporary works solutions at very short notice to overcome existing structure changes.
2. Constant liaison with the WCC highways department to manage deliveries and road closures to
coordinate with the adjacent ongoing development.
3. Maintaining demolition progress and resequencing works to accommodate all of the site changes in temporary works and scope of works.
4. Working within an extremely confined site environment (270m2) with several trades working simultaneously.
