Cork Street, The Spiritual Home of Modern and Contemporary Art in London
The Cork Street/New Bond Street project was a sensitively designed façade retention and refurbishment scheme, with significant new build on a complicated site, spanning several building plots. The redevelopment of the site was designed to provide new art gallery space, new retail and office space over 6 floors, including a basement level.
The basement was extended from New Bond Street top lots in Cork Street Mews which were located in the middle of the site.
We were appointed by Kier Construction initially to install 39no permanent bearing piles within the existing buildings. Our contract scope was later extended to 71no. piles and additional temporary works piles.
Restricted access piling methods were required owing to the limited space and headroom on site.
