This new development for Ridgeford will replace an existing 1970s’ office building with a nine storey building with two basement levels, containing residential apartments on the upper floors, retail at ground and lower floors and car parking in the second basement level.

The scheme requires the removal of the existing basement, which will require complex sequencing to maintain the stability of the adjoining buildings throughout the works. The project has been designed in 3D using Revit, following Level 2 BIM protocols. This has assisted with resolving the challenging structural arrangement, particularly in the basement where extensive transfer structures are required.
