The project involved the design of a 13 storey structure. Reinforced concrete was used for the suspended slab and the load bearing/shear walls. Concrete was selected to reduce the amount of steel weight due to the high cost of steel at the time of construction.

A reinforced concrete raft slab was used as the foundation due to the high axial loads applied to the bearing walls and the low bearing capacity of the soil. This project is a non-profit housing facility. This is the first non-profit housing project to be built in London since the mid 1990’s.
