Extensive geotechnical and geoenvironmental investigation for major commercial and residential redevelopment on site of historic wharves
The Royal Albert Dock development features over 400,000m2 of commercial and residential space, directly opposite London City Airport in London Borough of Newham. The area is predicted to become London’s third business district. The project was shortlisted in the 'Innovation of the Year' for the London Construction Awards 2018.
Following a review of previous ground investigations at this large site, we carried out an extensive ground investigation, comprising cable percussion boreholes, cone penetration testing, trial pitting and shallow opendrive sampling.
Our comprehensive report provided recommendations with respect to the design of foundations and for dealing with ground contamination. We were subsequently engaged by the main contractor to assist with remediation and waste disposal.
