Albert Embankment, LOndon

The Dumont

The Dumont is a thirty storey residential scheme on Albert Embankment. It sits over a three storey deep basement and ByrneLooby was appointed to design the basement propping and a logistics slab and tower crane base at ground floor suspended on plunge piles. Being adjacent to the Network Rail viaduct, the works required Network Rail approval. ByrneLooby acted as the CRE (Contractors Responsible Engineer) to manage the approval process.


A tree prop arrangement was used to leave the central space clear, allowing core construction to proceed ahead of the basement floors.
