Carried out Unexplode Ordnance Survey to uncover any potentially harm

THE
Challenge

A total of five buildings incorporating 379 units, rising to a height of 19 floors and linked by a landscaped courtyard were required in Tower Hamlets. We excavated to a depth of 10m to remove an old Dock wall and the foundations of historic cranes before constructing 5 storey RC frames.

THE Galldris
DIFFERENCE

Situated in the heart of London’s old docks, we knew this would be a site which threw up a range of unusual challenges. We carried out our Unexplode Ordinance Surveys before proceeding and uncovered small ammunitions and other potentially hazardous remnants of a Luftwaffe Air Raid over London. We have the skills and foresight to prepare for, and deal with, every eventuality on a site.
