With the exception of the towers in that render than are already completed and the improbable exception of Columbus, none of those towers are going to be built.

London £4.2bn super sewer talks open with contractors

Thames Water is inviting major contractors to table their ideas for the procurement of the £4.2bn Thames Tideway Tunnel project.

The water company plans a preliminary consultation with major tier 1 contractors with financial capacity and experience of managing and delivering complex, heavy civils and tunnelling works.

Construction is expected to start in 2016 and take up to seven years, and Thames Water said the demand for innovation will test the industry’s elite contractors, designers, manufactures and logistic experts.

The 7.2m diameter tunnel will broadly follow the River Thames, running 25km long and up to 70m deep.

Six custom-built tunnel boring machines will drive under the capital’s existing infrastructure, including bridges, transport and utility tunnels, in-river structures, river walls and buildings.

In addition to the tunnel and new pumping stations, contractors also need to intercept or control 34 combined sewer overflows that discharge into the river.

ISG to build £8.3m Bayswater apartments

Two weeks ago it was a £4.3m office conversion on Wardour Street. Now ISG has been awarded an £8.3m residential conversion scheme in the Bayswater area of London.

he latest scheme sees ISG deliver 12 high specification apartments within three existing five-storey townhouses in Craven Hill Gardens, as well as the construction of three new luxury mews properties to the rear of the building. With the internal structure of the townhouses already demolished, ISG will retain the two façades of the original building and install more than 100 tonnes of structural steelwork to provide a solid foundation for the new apartments.

Adjoining properties on either side will be underpinned as part of this structural phase, and the contractor will also extend the existing mansard roof and provide additional roof terraces to enlarge accommodation for the two luxury penthouses. The three four-storey mews properties will be traditionally constructed and designed to blend with the existing built environment, featuring white stucco plaster and masonry façades with pitched tiled roofs.

As part of the project, ISG will clean, repair and remodel the façade of the existing building to create a single communal entrance, as well as installing two new residents lifts and creating external car parking facilities. The project is scheduled for completion in November 2013.

ISG Fit Out divisional managing director Grahame Roberts said: “ISG’s growing reputation within the exclusive residential market has been forged through our innovative approach to each project and meticulous attention to detail. Working collaboratively with some of the UK’s finest architects and interior designers has provided us with an enviable portfolio of successfully completed projects.”

Linear Park

A continuous green corridor will sweep through the district from west to east – providing a beautifully landscaped, green and car-free pathway from Battersea Power Station all the way to Vauxhall Cross. Along its route the park will open out into a variety of open spaces and will extend off into the new developments, linking up with other public squares, shopping parades, hotels, parks and gardens.

This extraordinary green channel will be entirely open to the public and a focal point for shopping, sports, leisure and recreation, outdoor events and all forms of community life. Its edges will be lined with homes, shops, cafes, leisure venues and other attractions to draw people in and activate the space.

It will offer a new pedestrian and cycle route through the centre of the district – a green and pleasant alternative to the main road. At four key points along the way it will connect to the riverside path, giving people the opportunity to switch between the linear park and water’s edge as they make their way through the district on foot or by bike.

The linear park will be delivered in stages as a series of neighbouring brownfield investment sites are redeveloped – each one forming a new link in the green corridor. Its conception and design has been a collaborative process between neighbouring landowners and their consultant teams, the area’s two local authorities and the GLA. This innovative, partnership approach to spatial planning will provide an exceptional new amenity for the new Nine Elms on the South Bank.

The Nine Elms Vauxhall Partnership is now exploring management arrangements for the area’s new public spaces which would see them play host to a range of exciting outdoor events and attractions.

Linear Park gubbins.

St Marys Wins Over Planners

Squire and Partners has secured planning permission from Southwark Council for their new 124 metre tall design to stand on the Elephant and Castle Leisure Centre site.



Called St Mary's and developed by Lend Lease, who have recently raised cash thanks to their divestment of their share of Greenwich Peninsula, the proposal consists of a 37-storey tower and a shorter 4-storey building.
Between them they will have a total of 284 apartments with the tower having an average of 8 apartments per floor set around a central core. There will also be about 800 square metres of retail and commercial space on the ground floors of the building

To fit in proportionally with Strata the tower was originally penned with a slenderness ratio of about 1:45 which saw it with over 40 floors, but this was slightly decreased to the 1:5 it is today to avoid the scheme being excessively prominent from the Serpentine Bridge. Topping the tower will be two pavilions on the roof and stepped levels that allow for the creation of roof terraces.

All residents will be able to enjoy their own private outdoor living space, with the larger apartments having areas that will support plants embracing the concept of the garden tower. To shore up the environmental credits, the project also utilises rainwater recycling.

Further to this there will also be a new leisure centre to replace the existing one that's been designed by John McAslan. This contribution, estimated to be worth as much as £20 million, is considered as the planning gain by the authorities and thus the scheme will have no affordable housing.

The green light for the project marks the latest of a series of approved towers in and around Elephant and Castle, although only one major development, Strata, has been built so far.
