Bromley South Central

Sep 06, 2013

The London Borough of Bromley is set to be transformed as part of the Bromley South Central Project. The project is a £90million mixed-us PPP scheme which will see the regeneration of Bromley Town Centre. It involves the development of a new residential and leisure quarter which will include a multiplex cinema, apartments, hotels, shops and restaurants. 

A deep basement will be constructed on site which will house part of the cinema complex and 400 car-parking spaces. Byrne Looby has been appointed as specialist designer for the basement and is delivering both temporary and permanent works design for the project.

Commenting on the scale of the project Danny Glynn, Director with Byrne Looby said “with a basement perimeter of over 340m this site will be home to one of the largest basements being constructed in London at the moment”. 

Byrne Looby was appointed by Dawson Wam, the piling contractor on the project. Dawson Wam will be starting piling on site in the coming weeks, using their special double auger CFA system which has higher tolerances than conventional CFA piling. Byrne Looby is designing the temporary basement retention solution, which involves a 13m deep retained height. The embedded retaining wall will be supported in the temporary condition by high level and low level propping. Byrne Looby are also designing over 350 foundation piles for the site.
