Project: 101 George Street, Croydon
Client : Currently Confidential
Programme: 24 Months
Design: A 44- storey and 38-Storey tower scaling 135 meters.
Units : 546 PRS Units
Key Facts: The Worlds Tallest modular building.
The pair of 38-storey (115m) and 44-storey towers (135m) with two levels of below ground basement will be the world’s tallest structures to be built using modular construction methods. The 550-home development also includes winter gardens, an art gallery, an incubator hub for local businesses, an onsite cafe, gyms, club rooms and garden terraces. Barrett Mahony’s scheme involved challenging geotechnical design with a 10m basement dig on an existing piled site adjacent to TFL tram lines. The superstructure design required dynamic wind modelling and the design of the full height free standing slipform constructed RC cores to support CTL 650 tower cranes required to install the modular units.
