Carey London engaged Interspan to design and construct the post-tension slab works.
Lewisham Gateway Phase 2 is a new £375m mixed-use development in South-East London being constructed by Balfour Beatty Ltd for Muse Developments. Situated on land once occupied by the Lewisham Odeon Cinema, which famously hosted acts including the Beatles, David Bowie and the Who, this second phase comprises four buildings of 4, 10, 19 and 30 storeys.
The 54,000m2 scheme previously included 250mm thick RC slabs, which were reduced to 210mm thick by adopting a post-tension solution.
This saving in concrete thickness has helped reduce the structure’s dead weight and provided a raw material saving.
The scheme has been designed to integrate the railway station and the town centre.
Blocks D1, D2 & C will consist of an array of commercial & leisure space on the lower floors and residential accommodation for the upper levels. Block E will contain a cycle store and an electrical substation on the ground floor, with office space on the upper levels.
Upon completion, the towers will provide 530 residential units.
