Soho House Hotel, Redchurch Street
SD Structures provided structural design services for a new hotel and restaurant for Soho House in Shoreditch, East London. The building comprises a 5 storey steel frame above ground with a double basement.
We used our extensive experience of basement construction in confined prime London sites to develop a solution which maximised usable space by using a combination of underpinning and low level/ stepped contiguous piled retaining walls around neighbouring footings.
The steel frame was stepped back in a number of locations due to rights of light issues, and the whole ground floor was to be column free resulting in a number of transfer structures. SD used the latest software and construction techniques to design an efficient structure which saved the client over 12 tonnes of structural steel. Composite design, pre-cambered steels and super-elevated columns lead to a highly efficient design.
SD Structures took a concept design for Redchurch Street hotel and overcame a number of technical issues to produce an efficient structural design under time pressure to help keep the programme on track. SD developed a number of solutions to simplify construction and provide additional usable space.Ross Coughlan - Soho House
