Transforming Nine Elms inner city riverside district into a shining example of world class urban redevelopment for Central London.
Client: Ballymore Group
Contract Value: £1,100,000
DAM Structures were tasked with providing and installing a 500 tonne vierendeel truss bridge, which spans between the two new residential towers in Embassy Gardens, London at levels 8 to 12.
The original scheme required on-site welded connections but we identified a value engineering alternative, which allowed for the supply of cruciform beams and site bolted connections. This alternative created a significant cost saving and hazard minimisation for the client due to the amount of work which could be carried out at DAM’s fabrication shop prior to delivery.
Prior to being delivered to site the steelwork was painted in a 2hr fire intumescent protective coating which allowed for minimal on-site touch up. To aid installation access a crash deck was installed to the base of the bridge, this also allowed us to install purpose built tracks to allow MEWPS to be used and also ensured the safety of our personnel.
