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 will add two additional floors on top of the building.
The existing building is a reinforced concrete frame, and this structure will be retained up to the third floor level. The additional storeys are designed as a lightweight steel frame using composite floor construction. This will enable the existing foundations to be used without any additional works.
