West Green Road, Tottenham
This site at 270-274 West Green Road comprised poor quality shop units and ancillary buildings.
The client, IDM Properties gained planning permission for their demolition and replacement with a new 4-storey apartment block with retail space at ground floor. Civic Engineers acted at Civil and Structural Engineers.
The design comprised a new steel frame on piled foundations with a mix of precast concrete and timber floors. The project had very tight budgetary and programme constraints and was delivered successfully. A subsequent phase for the neighbouring site is planned.
One particular complexity was an existing Thames Water sewer running through the site which had to be diverted and attenuation introduced.
