Horseferry Magistrates Court
Robert West provided civil and structural engineering services for a prestigious residential development in the heart of Central London. The scheme comprised deepening of the existing basement to accommodate automatic parking and servicing requirements and 140 residential units over 10 floors.
Robert West carried out extensive investigations of the existing diaphragm walls, which were incorporated into the new works to establish penetration, condition and reinforcement layout.
A construction sequence was developed and AIP submissions agreed with Westminster City Council. The superstructure is a flat slab construction with stone cladding arranged around a central courtyard. The whole project was designed and drawn in 3D using BIM.
