Cadogan Mansions, Chelsea

The existing building (about 850 tonnes) sits on a brick arch rail tunnel, built about 100 years ago at the corner of Sloane Square. The building is being rebuilt with two retained facades. The brick arch tunnel is about a foot below the new building ( about 1,500 tonnes). It will be supported on a new transfer structure, with 120 anti-vibration bearings used to 'float' the superstructure and to reduce vibration and noise. A 'time/history'model of the substrata, undertaken with GCG/Imperial College, traces potential movement to assess impact on the Circle underground line.
