Wells House shared two party walls at the west and north of the site with 132-144 Oxford Street and Castle House respectively. Party wall approvals were obtained ahead of the commencement of demolition works, and we liaised with all stakeholders, assisting our client in this process. Temporary works design was completed by Swanton Consulting, our in-house temporary works department.
Concrete works commenced in a bottom up/blue sky sequence and we were highly commended for our attention to detail and finishes throughout.
Throughout the project, we were in constant communication with Westminster City Council, London Underground, Transport for London, surrounding businesses and residents to ensure the smooth delivery and constant cooperation whilst works were completed.
Works commenced on site at the height of the pandemic (March 2020). A thorough risk assessment was carried out and a site specific management plan was produced and regularly reviewed to ensure all works could be carried out safely and in line with government guidelines.
