CROSSRAIL, WELBECK WHARF, BARKING
Project: Crossrail, Welbeck Wharf, Barking, London
Client: Transport for London
Services provided: Pre-Aquisition Building Survey
Contract value: Undisclosed
As part of the Crossrail Project, Daniel Connal Partnership was appointed by Transport for London to undertake a Pre-Acquisition Building Survey of Welbeck Wharf in Barking.
The Wharf occupies a site of 4 Hectares with a range of industrial and commercial buildings in an area of approximately 17,500 m2. The site also fronted onto the River Thames where there was an ancient wharf structure.
DCP employed specialist sub-consultants to advise on potential environmental risks, mechanical and electrical services and the structural integrity of the wharf at the site where delivery of materials to service the Crossrail project was proposed.
The site was found to be heavily contaminated which had lead to structural movement occurring in a number of the buildings. We identified repairs required to the site equating to £4.8m
