60 Curzon Street

OVERVIEW

60 Curzon Street was an L-shaped 8 storey building constructed in the 1930’s, with the former Marco
Pierre-White ‘Mirabelle’ restaurant in the basement.

We successfully completed strip-out, asbestos removal and floor by floor demolition down to basement level, including the removal of the basement slab and foundations in a sensitive Mayfair location. Our works package was subsequently expanded to include pile enabling works carried out during demolition to achieve programme efficiencies and overall savings for our client.

CHALLENGES

Formation of a two storey street level opening and basement access ramp through the building façade for HGV access.

Coordination with the diversion & disconnection of all utility services that were present within both footpaths of Curzon Street and Bolton Street, to enable a clear path for piling.

Installation of new ducts and chambers and laying services within the roadway.

Design and installation of temporary works to retain the stability of the existing building perimeter including underpinning, vault filling and sheet piling.

Design and construction of two substantial pre-cast concrete block walling systems to retain a piling platform of 4,000m3 of crushed material.

ACHIEVEMENTS

The project was completed whilst building and maintaining positive relationships with neighbours, to the benefit of our client during follow on construction works.

We were awarded Performance Beyond compliance by the Considerate Contractors Scheme.
