Marble Arch Place is a landmark development in a spectacular location overlooking Hyde Park.
The development consists of an 18-storey residential tower with 54 apartments and a seven-storey commercial building providing a total of over 95,000 sq ft of high-quality offices. The apartments and offices benefit from exceptional views across the city, with several floors featuring large terraces. We were appointed to carry out structural engineering and environmental services, providing Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs) for the initial planning application and its revisions.
Our team measured air quality, ground contamination and wind conditions between and around the towers as well as noise and vibration during the demolition process. We designed a top-down basement construction methodology paired with a diaphragm retaining wall to prevent potential ground movements which also allows works to be carried out simultaneously.
Our specialists also incorporated acoustic attenuation bearings to prevent noise transfer from the London Underground Central.
