Goswell Road Project in collaboration with Willmott Dixon

 

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.

If you have a similar project you would like to discuss with us, please feel free to get in touch by email: enquiries@shaca.co.uk or call +44 (0) 1923 630 100.

Shaca works with Wilmott Dixon Interiors at the London Screen Academy

 

Shaca Construction has been working alongside Wilmott Dixon Interiors on an exciting project at London Screen Academy. The brand new building will house the sixth form college for students looking for a career in the film and TV industry.

The building was originally five storeys and we are working on the demolition of the central segments and replacing it with a three storey building plus a basement. This project will include an amazing state of the art studios, theatre and a stunning rooftop cinema space. A fantastic venue for any budding filmmaker!

Battersea Power Station to Power Up Again!

Battersea Power Station will once again be a source of energy supply for Londoners following the creation of a new Energy Centre 40 years after being taken out of service.

It  is set to become one of the largest of its kind ever to be created in the UK.

Shaca Construction are working alongside Vital Energi on the structural build and are now in the process of fitting it out ahead of completion in 2020.

To create the vast underground space adjacent to the River Thames, and in front of the Grade II* listed building has come with many issues and has been problematic

150,000 cubic metres of earth have been excavated and taken away using river barges. Some 16,000 cubic metres of concrete was poured, 4,200 tonnes of steel structure installed and 13,000 cubic metres of blockwork laid in what was undoubtedly a major construction and engineering challenge.

The new Energy Centre will be underground and provide natural sound proofing.

 

We are looking forward to seeing the finished project of this iconic building.
