This month, Careys Civil Engineering reached another significant milestone on the Marble Arch Place project – successfully completing one of their largest continuous concrete pours totalling 2,000m3 over 30 hours of placement.

Following their previous completion of slip form operations on the development’s two concrete cores.

Residential and commercial buildings overlooking Hyde Park

Upon completion in 2020, Marble Arch Place will provide the highest-quality specification of any residential or commercial building in London. The development’s apartments and offices will benefit from wonderful views of Hyde Park and the West End, with several floors featuring large terraces.

Overcoming logistic challenges in the heart of London

At Marble Arch Place – which is located on a busy, central London junction between Edgware Road and Marble Arch – our team is carrying out top-down excavation of a basement that extends over five storeys and will provide 4,000m2 of space per level. We are also constructing the two superstructures that will soar to nine and 19 storeys respectively.

To successfully deliver this vast pour, the team meticulously planned their works, rotating operatives through day and night shift rotas. The team used two pumps to feed concrete from the ground floor level, down to the basement 2 level and 20m under the residential building.

Careys Civil Engineering’s Marble Arch Place project manager – Simon commented,

For a project in the heart of London this was quite a considerable challenge but ran smoothly with an excellent supply from Tarmac and a fantastic team on the work front.

In the same week, the team also poured the final level on the residential slab - 19 floors above ground level and approximately 100m above their successful concrete pour.
