New eight-storey plus basement mixed use insitu reinforced concrete building with commercial accommodation at basement, ground and part first and second floors and residential accommodation for the remainder.

The site backs onto Wenlock Basin, part of the Regents Canal in North London and the soil investigation indicated the site to be seriously contaminated. The construction comprised insitu reinforced concrete flat slabs supported on columns and shear walls. These shear walls provide building stability. Due to the very high water table and that the basement is constructed on the site boundary, the basement was formed by the use of a driven steel sheet piled wall with an RC facing wall behind. Concrete internal columns/walls are supported on a piled raft foundation.
