One The Thames, Arundel Great Court

  • Developer/Owner: The Vinyl Factory
  • Client/Main Contractor: Carillion
  • Architects: HCLA Holden Cherry Lee Architects

One The Thames is a new and prestigious riverfront development comprising of three towers, two residential and one hotel complex. This development is situated on the bend of the north bank of the River Thames offering unrivalled views of the Thames through to the City of London.

Residents of One The Thames will have a grand entrance via Temple Place, a landscaped courtyard as well as on site facilities including a swimming pool, fitness room and events room available to hire.

To complement its outstanding location, One The Thames will be constructed and finished using the finest materials and architectural finishes to create a feeling of contemporary elegance and luxury.

Morrisroe’s work includes the construction of a substructure and superstructure reinforced concrete frame.

The substructure package incorporates a complex temporary works arrangement designed by our subsidiary, Kingscote Design Ltd.

This will be installed during and after the main piling package to enable us to secure the existing external walls and roads whilst allowing us to excavate to a new three-floor basement level.

As with most projects in city locations, limited access to the site requires careful planning; in this instance temporary work is constantly under review as a result of the configuration and changes of level for the bulk dig.

The temporary works will be left in place – in part – until the ground floor has been constructed, over the completed B3, B2, & B1. The basement to B2 and the external walls to the ground floor will be of waterproof construction. The superstructure for the ground floor will be split into three towers, West / East towers residential and the South tower a hotel complex. The cores will be constructed using Jumpform technology with R.C. slabs and floor plates.

Morrisroe will also be completing the underground drainage systems for the development that will lead to pump chambers and then to 4 no headings installed through tunnels. Along with this we will undertake a complete light protection scheme.
