Buckle Street

Aldgate, London
Bennett Constrcution

21 Buckle Street was a former office block located by Aldgate East Train Station. The building construction was steel frame, concrete plank floor slabs with brick cavity walls tied to the steel frame.

The office block was situated next to a new residential block, existing offices and a church to the rear. The limited working space and small access road meant that the building had to be demolished using a top down demolition methodology. Our experienced team worked closely with the client during the pre construction phase to develop a methodology that would provide minimal disturbance to the sites sensitive receptors.

Limited working space proved difficult throughout the demolition but we were able to complete on time and with minimal disturbance.
