Crown Place

The project involved phased demolition, on the borders of the City of London, of a redundant island site with a live restaurant at ground floor and basement levels being maintained in the initial phases.

Works included extensive mechanical and electrical diversions, asbestos removal and installation of a comprehensive crash deck above a new semi‑permanent weatherproof deck over the restaurant.

In the initial phases, no material/debris removal was allowed via Earl Street (due to the restaurant entrance) and thus all debris was removed piecemeal via the rear of the site.

New works included new walls and a double lined waterproof deck around the restaurant.

Party wall supports and bracing were installed to maintain the integrity of the Public House next door.

The final phase of demolition involved the total demolition of the island site down to second basement level (after the restaurant had vacated).  The initial phases were negotiated in quasi partnership with the Client.
