Piling work gets underway on Bromley regeneration scheme

Construction on what has been described as one of the largest basements in London has started in Bromley this week.

Piling contractor Dawson Wam will install over 350 piles for the deep basements on the £90M mixed use Bromley South Central Project regeneration scheme.

The basement, which has been designed by Byrne Looby, will house a cinema complex and 400 space car park for the development which also includes apartments, hotels, shops and restaurants.

“With a basement perimeter of over 340m this site will be home to one of the largest basements being constructed in London at the moment,” said Byrne Looby director Danny Glynn.

Dawson will use its special double auger CFA system which has higher tolerances than conventional CFA piling, according to Glynn.

Byrne Looby is also designing the temporary basement retention solution, which involves a 13m deep retained height.
