2402 - Worship Square
Structural engineering design for a new nine-storey commercial development located in the South Shoreditch conservation area. The completed building will provide flexible and affordable workspace for a range of tenants, from small start ups to established enterprises.
- Key features
- Demolition of two existing office buildings to form one unified building with two levels of basement
- This structure will be formed of a steelwork superstructure around a central reinforced concrete core to provide lateral stability
- The basement retaining walls will be formed from a secant piled wall installed from ground floor inboard of the existing walls
- The foundations will be constructed from a concrete raft slab with tension piles to resist uplift forces and will re-use the existing piles on site to enhance the bearing capacity
