The enabling works consisted of initial soft strip and survey of the entire building followed by removal of the roof, central core and part of the ground floor slab whilst the ground floor and basement tenant remained in occupation. This scope of works also involved the design and installation of a substantial temporary works system prior to the roof and core removal.
RED Special Projects then carried-out the forming of a new lift core starting with confined pilling works undertaken from a platform at ground floor level yet forming the piles at basement level. Once the pilling works were complete the new cast in situ pile cap and cast in situ concrete cores were formed partly utilising new steel frame sections welded to the existing frame and traditional concrete formwork.
All the above works were carried-out working through a single door at ground floor level for the lower level works and a small gantry at first floor level for the upper floor works.
