It’s efficient plan maximises volume under St. Paul’s heights and allows daylight in from all sides. 33 Central features a 4,300 ft2 double height reception, secure storage for 237 bicycles, and a quarter acre roof-top garden.

Waterman provided structural engineering services on the scheme which involved the reuse of existing foundation that consisted of raft and 160 piles. The site’s historic record information was located in conjunction with a suite of sampling and testing to confirm size, location and durability of the piles. The assessment provided the necessary information on the buried and inaccessible founding structures to develop a fully Eurocode compliant reuse design. The selection of a new steelwork frame enabled a long span, column free office space to be created which significantly contributed to the time and cost savings of foundation reuse due to its lightweight characteristics.
