47 weeks at Phase 1 of the Royal Albert Dock development
The workforce at Royal Albert Dock persevered through the “Beast from the East” and storm Emma to keep the project open and operatives working safely which was a great effort by all members of the team. Rooftop slabs have now been completed on all the buildings marking a fantastic achievement for the project team just 47 weeks after breaking ground on 24th April 2017.
Façade cladding has now been completed on 2 of the 5 structures which is now giving the internal trades a great opportunity to demonstrate their ability to work together and deliver a world class fit out. With spring now upon us we will be focusing on below ground services and progressing the landscaping on the project, as part of this there will be 5,000 metres of district heating and cooling pipework installed across this phase of the development.
40 weeks at Phase 1 of the Royal Albert Dock development
MPX have now been on site for 40 weeks at Phase 1 of the Royal Albert Dock development, this is phase 1 of 6 phases which will deliver commercial, retail and residential spaces across the development. Since arriving on site MPX have completed a UXO survey of the area and no ordinance was discovered which allowed the works to proceed on site. MPX have had and continue to liaise closely with local stakeholders including RoDMA, Regatta Centre, London Borough of Newham and GLA. To date MPX have completed all foundations on site and are significantly through the erection of the 5 concrete frames that constitute phase 1. The concrete frame works will be complete by the end of March when MPX will have poured 30,000m3 of concrete since starting on the development. MPX are now following completion of some of the frames installing the façade and roofing works which includes utilising a 110T crane on a barge in the dock and have commenced the internal fit out.
