This project involves the construction of an innovative new build ‘hub’ hotel behind the retained façade of a Victorian warehouse, in the heart of Shoreditch. The proposed RC framed structure will be six storeys high plus a single level of basement. The site is located immediately adjacent to the mainline Network Rail tracks from Liverpool Street station. Consequently it has been necessary to discuss the project with Network Rail from its conception. The buildability of the structure has been analysed in great detail from an early stage, to ensure risks involved with craneage, scaffold access and construction vibrations can be mitigated and agreed with Network Rail.
