Below are a few examples of the specialist input that our team provide:

GROUND ENGINEERING

Our structural engineering and pre-construction teams work with London's top ground investigation specialists, whether you need assistance with feasibility or planning assessments, geotechnical or temporary works solutions.

 

The fact is high rise buildings in tightly constrained London sites have deep basements, requiring specialist ground engineering, our specialists can provide:

  • Basement impact assessments

  • Ground movement analysis

  • Ground movement impact assessments

  • Groundwater seepage or flow analysis

  • Slope stability design and analysis

  • Retaining wall design

  • Construction sequencing

  • Basement propping solution systems

  • Structural monitoring

  • Deformation monitoring

  • Vibration monitoring

  • 3D Displacement modelling

LOGISTICS PLANNING & VERTICAL DISTRIBUTION

The construction industry accounts for 35% of all daytime Heavy Goods Vehicle (HGV) traffic movements within London. Planning these movements to consider the movements on other construction projects is critical to the safety of operatives as well as reducing congestion and improving air quality.

Our Pre-Construction Planning Team assist with preparing a Construction Logistics Plan to manage and mitigate construction vehicle activity in and around the construction site.

Similarly once materials arrive at a high rise construction site with limited storage vertical logistics planning is also critical, our team assist with the following; Construction Logistics Plan (CLP),  Traffic Management Plans (TMP), Traffic Control Studies, Turning Circle Modelling.

CIVIL AVIATION REQUIREMENTS

Whilst many people who have constructed a high rise building before may understand that aircraft warning lights are installed to high-rise buildings, what is less known is the guidelines and best practice when constructing tall buildings above set heights or when erecting tower cranes or climbing self erecting tower cranes.

Our team can assist with the following requirements:

  • Consultation with the Civil Aviation Authority regarding Communication and Navigation Systems

  • Notification to the Ministry of Defense for the requirement to publish details on the Digital Vertical Obstruction file.

  • Submission of notification of Aerodrome Safeguarding to the relevant parties at Heathrow, City, etc. and Battersea Heliport.

  • Update the National Air Traffic Service to confirm any further project specific requirements.

  • Maintain dialogue and updates with the Emergency Helicopter Medical Service (EHMS).

  • Submission to Airspace Utilisation for Notice of Airmen (NOTAM) for tower crane operation on each crane climb or as structure advances.

  • Update the defense geographic centre and seek any required guidance.

  • Review compliance with Article 219 of the UK Air Navigation Order (ANO) 20091.

  • Ensure the design of the aviation warning lights comply with the Civil Aviation Publication (CAP) 168 for the Licencing of Aerodromes.

Whilst many people believe that the construction of skyscrapers and super-talls is the same as building any other structure, it is not just simply a case of continuing to add additional storeys.
