Commercial structural refurbishment case study


Client: BAM Construction

Location: Africa House, Kingsway, Holborn, London

Contractor: Deconstruct UK Ltd

Completion Date: September 2011 

Sector: Commercial structural refurbishment


Structural ‘cut and carve’ project at Africa House, Holborn for BAM.












About the project:


Our package of works at Africa House was a major ‘cut and carve’ alteration and demolition contract to a  significant former commercial premises in Holborn central London. This high profile project required substantial temporary works design and installation to transfer temporary loads around occupied ground floor premises of JD Wetherspoon and Ladbrokes. The fast track programme of 22 weeks meant a pro-active design process was key to successful delivery of the project. Deconstruct were very pleased to ensure a safe and timely delivered project.


Project challenges:


Throughout the works a Wetherspoon Public House remained open on the ground floor along with a trading Ladbrokes. Because of the nature of the temporary works, loads from the structures retained above had to be diverted around occupied areas, along with vibration and noise being controlled to a minimum.


Logistics in and out of the site were restricted to a loading compound to the rear, so timely materials management was essential.
