A confined site close to the main railway into London Bridge.
Tully De’Ath are involved in the preparation of outline proposals for new structures and underground drainage to form part of Employer’s Requirements for tender enquiries for the new development on the site at 27-29 Blue Anchor Lane, Bermondsey.
The site has significant challenges – it is located on a confined site on the north side of Blue Anchor Lane close to the junction with Bombay Street. Immediately to the north of the site is the main railway line to London Bridge Station raised on a viaduct. The site has contamination issues that also need to be resolved.
The proposed development comprises 37 new residential units. 36 will form flats within a new seven storey building and there is 1 mews house at the rear. Soft and hard landscaping is also proposed with 4 disabled parking places and vehicle access off Bombay Street. The main building is to be brick clad with a flat roof supporting a green or brown roof. The house is a two storey brick clad building with a similar roof proposal.
Foundations will be piled for the main building and Tully De’Ath will need to work closely with both the contractor and Network Rail to limit the effects of vibrations from the railway viaduct structure and to gain Network Rail’s approval for the works.
A vibration impact assessment is also to be carried out to ensure the vibration from passing trains does not adversely affect the building and its inhabitants. If necessary the building will be isolated from its foundations to counter this.
Tully De’Ath have been appointed by East Thames to undertake Masterplanning services on the proposed redevelopment of Bromley by Bow.
The aim of the development is to replace derelict and under-utilized industrial space with a high quality mixed use development. As well as providing a range of new employment space, the scheme will create an attractive and accessible riverside environment.
