Key technical challenges

  • The primary tower structure consists of a composite slab and beam structure. Due to the long beam spans and thin slab, extensive analysis for footfall vibration was required to ensure the structure achieved code requirements and client expectations.
  • Working with the existing structure and developing design solutions that strengthened rather than demolished.
  • Extensive co-ordination with the mechanical engineer to develop a strategy that minimised beam penetrations and beam notches.
  • Differential shortening analysis with consideration of mega truss, steel structure, concrete structure and existing structural elements

Environmental performance

  • 5 Star Greenstar
  • 5 Star NABERs Energy and 4 Star NABERs Water ratings.

Structural Features

RBG developed the strategy for a site-wide road network that has multiple interfaces and constraints including ongoing Phase 1 and 2 works, future Phase 3 and 4 works; the adjacent Northern Line Extension (NLE) and its earthworks conveyor system; multiple utilities with staged implementation; a Thames Water main and its compound; an adjacent Heat Rejection Plant and its duct routing, combining programming; and staged site access development. RBG’s role merged six stages of highway access aligned to the site-wide programme and staged construction, and delivered from outline strategy through to construction.
