1206 - Featherstone Building
The project is a new-build, 10-storey commercial development near Old Street station with Morris + Company Architects.
- RC framed building with exposed concrete walls, columns and flat slabs, which required careful detailing to meet architectural requirements.
- Slabs designed to incorporate cast in cooling pipes to make use of the thermal mass of the building.
- Piled substructure, with a single storey basement under the whole site. Contiguous piled walls installed at ground level and set in board of existing basement walls, to increase basement depth.
- Northern line and Network Rail tunnels are located a short distance from the site and required cantilever pile caps to set back the piles and minimise the impact on the tunnels.
