The 145 CR development comprises of a 38-storey residential tower, a 10-storey commercial tower and kiosk building. Retail space is provided at ground floor levels set within a high quality public plaza. Its location on a constrained site has generated a complex structural solution to the residential tower anyway it will be a highly visible addition to the London skyline.
MEW provided technical assistance in static analysis to Focchi spa commissioned for design and installation of the whole external envelope of the building.
The facade envelope is characterized by insoulated double glazed unitised curtain walling. The east and west elevations are dressed by units with aluminium infil panels while on the north and south elevations the glazing façade is maximised to optimize daylight penetration into the plan.
