Coming out of the Ground

Works are progressing well on the Orford Studios project, after several months of demolition and basement excavation works, we have now poured the first area of basement slab. The residential project located near to Sloane Square, is made up of a four storey town house and 4 duplex apartments, designed by Haptic Architects who have recently been awarded the BD Interior Architect of the Year for 2016.

The formation of the basement across the whole site has been challenging, with over 8 adjoining properties, requiring a mix of underpinning and contiguous piles to be used, together with extensive propping to complete the basement excavation.

“It has been a real challenge to complete this first phase of the works, however with a team approach from the Client and the Design Team, we have worked together to overcome any issues that have occurred”.
