The Minories

Story

The Minories redevelopment is part of the regeneration and expansion of the core fabric of the City of London eastwards. Located on Aldgate High Street, it will provide 20,000 sqm offices, 16,500 sqm hotel, 8,000 sqm residential space.

Acting as Principal Contractors, Morrisroe was awarded the contract to construct a double storey basement box and podium slab which supports a 16 storey residential block and a 14 storey hotel extension. The extension is to be attached to an existing disused commercial development and is undergoing a complete refurbishment, to covert the building into a ‘five star’ hotel.

As part of our package of works we managed the groundworks, piling, substructure and superstructure works.

Logistics

The site foot print of some 3,500 metres was spread across a narrow site which meant that access was limited. Construction was carried out within in line with s.106 requirements to minimise noise and disturbance to adjacent residential properties.

Groundworks  

Typical of construction in and around the City of London, the site required careful groundworks and excavation as a result of multiple levels of earlier construction, including foundations and piles that date back to the 19th century.  

Due to the location of the site there was much interest from The Museum of London as well as 1st Line Defence during the excavation works to establish whether there were any archaeological treasures and unexploded bombs buried on the site.  

Superstructure:

The core walls were built traditionally on a floor by floor basis and the superstructure was designed as traditional RC frames.
