Stonecutter Court
We were awarded the full demolition of One Stonecutter Court including 81 Farringdon Street, London, EC4A 4TR.
The site was situated at the junctions of Stonecutter Street and Farringdon Street, and Stonecutter Street and Bride Street, within the City of London.
Technical Challenge
The buildings consisted of an 8 storey office block with 2 basement levels to No.1 Stonecutter Court, and 5 storeys with 1 basement level to No. 81 Farringdon Street.

The site shared a boundary with the Victorian, Grade II listed Hoop and Grapes Public House, situated at 80 Farringdon Street.

The scope of works included the soft strip and top-down demolition as well as temporary works to retain the public house and basement temporary works .
The site was located on the incredibly busy Farringdon Street, and surrounded by  sensitive commercial properties –  including the head office of a well-respected financial institution.  Regular meetings were held to ensure any disruption was kept to a minimum.
Retention of the listed building

We worked closely with our in-house engineering team, Swanton Consulting, on the extensive temporary works scheme required as well as those required at basement level.

Surrounding works

With multiple high profile projects taking place in the immediate area, collaboration took place to ensure works and deliveries were sequenced to assist all parties.
