This heavily restricted site in central London presented multiple complex design and logistical challenges. The project involved encapsulating the DLR Line for 150m, to provide a robust, suspended foundation for the development above. The live rail line and a limited rail possession of just 48 hours meant that speed, efficiency and safety were paramount concerns.
