  • 4-level lobby zone under 22m architecturally inspired slender composite “Y” transfer columns at the base of the tower, each carrying 13,000 tonnes.
  • Pure tension transfer columns used to hang multiple levels from upper decks.
  • Varying floor plate geometry along the height of the building.
  • Challenging excavation methodology adjacent to Crane Lane, support provided by horizontal post-tensioned concrete beam anchored via custom steel walers
  • Efficient design using high-strength and high-performance concrete made possible by advice from BG&E Materials Technology.
  • Lateral stability achieved through an eccentric cantilevering concrete core – narrow at the base of the tower to maximise basement parking.
  • Full temporary works design and construction methodology advice.
