The biggest constraint on the project has been the location. Situated adjacent to Moorgate Underground Station and built above the Moorgate Elizabeth Line – Crossrail Station and the LUL tunnel to the north of the site known as CW62.
Leslie Clark successfully integrated the Design Hazard Register into the project’s BIM model to ensure the hazard information was always available and in the control of the designers producing and responsible for them. This also aided the project as Leslie Clark continued the CDM Principal Designer role while the rest of the design team was novated over to the Principal Contractor.
Another location constraint is the lack of site area for storage and material movement. Large parts of the structure, including the façade, are being constructed off site and then lifted into their final positions on site.
All of this is occurring while the busy Moorgate station and surrounding properties stay open and active.
Leslie Clark, as CDM Principal Designer & Client Adviser, was involved in the pre-construction (design) phase and continue into the construction phases.
