Southbank Place, London

Project Description:


A mix of offices, homes, and retail space in the heart of London. The Shell Centre Tower remained the centrepiece of the development and occupied by Shell who have taken a further 245,000 sq ft of new space within Building 1. The site comprised of eight new buildings, two providing commercial space of circa 530,000 sq ft of office space, along with around 48,000 sq ft for new retail units, restaurants, and cafés, whilst the other six buildings provide 800+ new homes.

The project comprised demolition of circa 60,000m2 of concrete frame offices, 4 floors of basement and splitting the demolished parts from the retained and occupied Shell Tower. The demolition was further complicated by Waterloo Underground Station residing directly beneath the East part of the site including associated transfer and torsion structures.
