The area around the Royal Docks is experiencing significant regeneration and substantial commercial investment following the construction of a new Crossrail station at Custom House, which is due to open in 2018. Within the development there are a number of identifiable character areas. These include the Urban Park, Gallions Green (a linear park that runs east to west across Phase 2A and 2B southern boundary) and Gallions Street which make up the public realm landscape provision. With Block A there is a communal amenity podium deck, providing discrete, private spaces for residents to utilise.
Sub-Tech was contracted to install a 300mm sewer diversion and six chambers for the new development. These works were undertaken while over-pumping the existing system. A working shaft of 4m deep was dug to perform the pipework.
