Hancock Road


Bromley by Bow





The project is a  design and build project to  construct 219 apartments with 2 floors of commercial space.
The build  consisted of 4 RC  Frame blocks ranging up to 9  floors with a central courtyard area and basement underground parking.
A new access road has been installed  with an RC bridge  abutment/ gabion walling  for a future  link across the River lee.



  • A reinforced ground floor slab was the removed and crushed on site for reuse as a  piling mat
  • Bomb probing was  then  carried out prior to piling works commencing
  • The above operation required large fan dust suppression and careful vibration monitoring  due to adjacent printer works factory
  • Additional marketing suite bid undertaken and completed during the project
  • Three GCL tower cranes have  been installed to facilitate the build the  RC basement / Frame



GCL commenced as principal contractor  on site after the demolition had removed the existing disused  industrial buildings, with Higgins Construction taking over as principle contractor for the main build process.

A total of 14000 cubic  mtrs of inert material  was removed from site  in the  construction of  the underground basement and foundations.
Due to the  river lee  running  adjacent to the  site a watertight  basement  car park was constructed  using  the  Pudlo  concrete  additive system.
