Norland Square

Project Information

Location: Norland Square, Holland Park.

The Challenges

Brief: Construct sub-terranean swimming pool to rear garden of  5.5m wide terraced house including retaining garden walls and protecting tree. Excavation was in excess of 9.00m


Solution: Crane the plant  over the existing building, under pin and cut  out slots in existing garden wall to install king posts for the formation of reinforced concrete drop wall. Cast the reinforced concrete waterproof ground slab hanging from the king posts, then construct the swimming pool using a top down method. This method eliminated the  majority of temporary works in a tight site with poor access and minimize disruption to the neighbours.
