Victoria Nova scheme expands with steel
Steelwork erection is progressing on the n2 building, which represents phase two of the Nova development adjacent to London Victoria railway station.
The 17-storey commercial building will eventually require William Hare to erect 3,300t of steelwork.
Landsec Project Director Damien Bettles said: “Built on one of London’s most bustling sites, n2 can only be supported on a small number of large diameter foundation piles positioned in between London Underground and Thames Water assets.
“To overcome this challenge, the ground floor and first floor spaces are cleverly designed around a system of steelwork trusses, able to transfer the optimised commercial grid of the 17-storey superstructure to the foundation piles. With spans of up to 45m, the use of steelwork for the truss system is key to delivering a sustainable design solution.”
The n2 scheme is due to complete in mid-2023.
