The original building at 32 Jamestown Road, in the Borough of Camden, was built as a pharmaceutical laboratory in the late 1980’s. Currently in use as an office, the building consists of a basement, ground floor and three additional storeys. The new mixed-use development has added two additional floors on top of the building.
The existing building is a reinforced concrete frame, and this structure has been retained up to the third floor level. The additional storeys were designed as a lightweight steel frame using composite floor construction. This enabled the existing foundations to be used without any additional strengthening works.
