Gransden Avenue

This new build commercial and residential development in Hackney, London is located on contaminated ground and a site surrounded by sensitive structures including a Grade II listed building. The development consists of three multi-storey RC frames, a single storey steel frame and a basement below covering the entire 2800m² footprint of the site. The basement wall, which will be formed up against sensitive boundaries, has been detailed to maximise space for the client and minimise temporary works.

We implemented an effective risk management process to identify, assess and minimise critical risks relating to construction and commercial aspects of the project, and developed an appropriate solution to meet client objectives. The basement will be formed using contiguous piles, propped at the head by a ground floor transfer slab on which the RC frames will be built directly off. We achieved a simple flat slab form of construction for ease of construction and a slim and efficient element design to maximise internal space and reduce build costs.
