The £83m development at Anthology Hale, which will feature 279 apartments and three retail units on the ground floor, is surrounded by other buildings, a busy road bridge and streets thronging with pedestrians, with London Underground assets running underneath.

The lack of space around this 33-storey mixed-use development, has meant a range of innovative solutions from engineering to technological and logistical had to be introduced.
