L1 Studios – Construction Update February 2017
The developer’s team has recently carried out a site investigation to the plot, which related to environmental searches and to assess the ground for foundation design.
Following this successful investigation, the developer has sent a team onsite to confirm the findings of the site investigation report. The onsite team has also determined the extent of the basement to the adjacent property. These trial site investigations have meant that SWF Consultants are able to finalise the foundation design for the project.
Furthermore, last week saw a design team meeting held, which was attended by the architects for the development, the structural engineer, the M & E engineers and the main contractor, Ridgemere. The purpose of the meeting was to co-ordinate all of the different elements of the building design, which are now being drawn up ahead of full construction commencing onsite in May.
