Lots Road is a major mixed-use redevelopment of a former power station situated either side of Chelsea Creek on the north bank of the River Thames in Chelsea. The focal point of the development is the conversion of the main power station building into an expanded village centre enabling pedestrian access to the river.
Two new landmark towers will mark the entrance to Chelsea Creek with 1.6 hectares of public open space concentrated along the Creek and the Thames.
Waterman provided extensive environmental, structural and power engineering consultancy services to help secure planning permission throughout a Public Inquiry, Secretary of State referral and a challenge in the High Court. Detailed studies during the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) ensured the impacts of the development were fully understood and mitigation measures incorporated into the design.

Waterman was Project Manager and Supervisor for the 2 year NEC Contract of remediation and clearance works undertaken by Brown & Mason to make the site ready for construction.
Waterman developed an Environmental Management Plan and monitored the impact of the demolition works against agreed criteria.
