Stephenson House Project – London

Our project at Stephenson House in London is progressing well.  The project involves internal structural works and groundworks in this redevelopment of an office building into a mixed-use scheme.

The work has so far involved the following:

  • Breaking out columns
  • Preparing the concrete slab for re-casting of the basement slab
  • Removing the large ground obstruction and preparing to mass fill with concrete to reinstate the slab.

 

Ground works and reinforced concrete account for a large proportion of Shaca’s turnover and we have successfully completed many new build groundworks schemes.  Examples of the schemes include underpinning works, basements and swimming pools.

Many of our projects are in very challenging central London sites with restricted access and often within/below existing buildings.

If your organisation requires similar groundworks, please feel free to get in touch.

March 19, 2020 - Comments Off on Middle Temple Project

Middle Temple Project

Our team has been hard at work at our Middle Temple project in North London. This extensive project has included multiple stages internally and externally.  Some of the internal changes involved:

  • Bricking in of existing fireplaces prior to structural works which included the installation and removal of Acrow Props with strong boys which form part of the temporary works.
  • Supply and installation of Naylor concrete lintels top & bottom to close off the existing chimney flues as per the engineer’s specification.
  • Break out of the existing structural masonry work wall to form the new door opening and make good as per the architect’s specification.
  • Supply and install temporary works to prop the existing arched brick and appropriate floor joist until stainless steel sleeve and grout are in place.
  • Diamond core holes through 1.2m structural external masonry walls.
  • Supply and install stainless steel sleeves to allow the M&E services to pass through external walls.
  • Grouting around new sleeves
  • Supply and paint of the new structural box frame with 60 Mins fire resistant intumescent paint.
  • Removal of the existing wood frames and windows in the main staircases, break out of the existing masonry wall.
  • Supply and brick in the existing windows with Class B engineer bricks to support the new link bridge & concrete padstones over.

Externally, our team at Shaca Construction have been working hard to dig the external trenches.  The operation included cat scanning the entire area prior to lifting up the existing York paving slabs.  Once the paving slabs were lifted a new external trench was dug out including the installation of trench supports.

Works are well underway at our Goswell Road project where we’re collaborating with Willmott Dixon.

Our photos show progress on the new ground floor pile caps and lift share area on rebar installation.

Groundworks and reinforced concrete account for about half of Shaca’s turnover and we have successfully completed many new build groundworks schemes, including underpinning schemes, basements and swimming pools.

Many of our projects are in very challenging central London sites with restricted access and often within / below existing buildings.

January 23, 2020 - Comments Off on Propping Up Piccadilly

Propping Up Piccadilly

Works are well underway at our project in Piccadilly. We’re using temporary propping to support adjacent buildings during the demolition phase of the project.

We’ve worked on many such projects in London where heavy duty temporary propping is required to support buildings.  With over 400 schemes completed in London, we’re used to working in difficult conditions where access is restricted, and noise levels strictly monitored.

We’re looking forward to the next phase of the Piccadilly project and will keep you posted.

Could we help with your London construction project?  Please call us on +44 (0) 1923 630 100 or send an email to enquiries@shaca.co.uk.  One of our team will be in touch to see how we can help.
