- The new building design completely filled the footprint of the site. A logistically challenging, tight, constrained site.
- During the demolition, the site team worked hard with a specialist contractor in developing a dewatering scheme to mitigate a high-risk area of concern. The existing basement had to be removed to form a new car park. Wates temporary works were involved to produce a temporary support system incorporating CFA piles to retain the existing adjacent highway and footpath. The dewatering system worked well and enabled the progress to be retained in the ground during the winter months.
- Satisfactory early handover of the Marketing Suite achieved as required by customer.
- “Nudura” system as a structural solution also used on this project.
