Unilever House, Surrey - Unilever (UK) Ltd
We were engaged by MHBC on behalf of Unilever PLC one of the UK's biggest companies to construct a brand new, steel framed podium car park to form an additional 136 car spaces.
The works were carried out at Unilever's main office in Leatherhead, the site presented a number of challenges including buried services, an energy centre in close proximity to the works, sensitive neighbours and environmental considerations.
A key feature of the works was to safely design & install the 140 piled foundations required with associated civils. The areas were carefully checked & mapped for concealed & buried services and the foundations designed by MHBC were positioned around these.
Another key feature of the works is tenant liaison & careful management of the works as the site is within a busy office complex/business park. The works consisted of CFA pile foundations with associated R.C pads and associated civils.
The main podium frame is a hot rolled steel frame circa 650 tonnes with a precast sectional slab forming the deck. In addition there are railings, staircases, surfacing works, access control and barriers.
