Commissioned by Knight Dragon and designed by world renowned architects SOM, the Upper Riverside development is one of the finest examples of residential high rise and riverside architecture in London.
We were appointed as Principal Contractor to construct a watertight shared basement box, and subsequently appointed to build the superstructure comprising five residential towers, ranging between 21 and 31 storeys.
Prior to the Upper Riverside development A J Morrisroe had constructed the basement and 17 storey core for the adjacent TfL’s offices.
Awards & CCS Silver
Access to the O2 Arena and neighbouring buildings was maintained throughout the project. Innovative air remediation during the ground works phase, excellent neighbourhood engagement, and innovative safety solutions resulting in “Million Man” hours RIDDOR free, contributed to our achieving exemplary CCS scores as well as being awarded Knight Dragon’s Greenwich Peninsula Safety Award in 2018.
Morrisroe Peri Collaboration
An innovative access system designed in collaboration with PERI integrated the PERI UP access system with a hydraulic climbing formwork system. Consisting of a cantilever deck, the climbing formwork system was suspended from concrete slabs below the working deck, which provided our team with access to six levels at any one time. This optimised concrete operations and reduced the waiting times associated with traditional access systems. The system also negated the need to build traditional stair system on the external elevation of each building, thereby providing clear access to the cladding contractor.
