Creating the buildings and travel infrastructure for a major new workplace
Ludgate presented Stanhope with a technically challenging project that involved complicated engineering work to create new land comprising three office buildings and a new public square.
During an intensive two-year programme of work, Stanhope demolished the viaduct and its associated train station, relocated the rail line underground, moved roads and services, and built a new station for the relocated rail line. The programme culminated in a planned closure of just 17 days to remove the famous Ludgate Circus Bridge, all with minimal disruption to services.
This project was undertaken in partnership with British Rail, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, Arup, and Bovis Construction Ltd.
