250 City Road is a distinctive new landmark for Islington. Located opposite the City Road Basin (part of the Regent’s Canal), the development has been designed to protect against the noise and pollution of the city as well and northerly winds.
When completed the development will provide high density, low energy residential community living complete with shops, cafes and restaurants, all arranged around a green park at the centre of the development.
We were appointed on phase 2 and 3 of the development. Our scope of works included demolition, enabling, basement excavation, propping and piling works, the construction of a ground bearing slab, and the construction of superstructure concrete frames for blocks 2-7, including a 37-storey hybrid tower designed by Foster + Partners.
Also included in our scope was the installation of steel roof structures.
