This three year project saw the Applebridge team complete extensive construction works below ground within the challenging constraints of a building with conservation status.

Their challenge:

The project involved many unique challenges, including: working in close proximity to two lines of the East Coast mainline; working within a tight city centre space; propping of an existing 19th century underground warehouse below the site; working within buildings with conservation status and working under an NEC form of contract.

Our solution:

The three year, £6m below ground and concrete works for this complicated city centre scheme comprised:
  • Reinforced concrete slab, frame and roof
  • Construction below-ground within existing 19th century warehouse
  • Reinforced concrete building
  • New reinforced concrete slabs throughout
  • New drainage
  • Extensive temporary works
  • Piling within existing 19th century warehouse
  • Observing the conservation status of the building

The results:

This £6m project commenced in October 2011 and was completed in June 2014.
