WSP were appointed by Brookfield to provide structural design and building services for Strata SE1. At 43 storeys and 147.9 metres in height, Strata SE1 is the tallest residential building in central London and is leading the economic regeneration of Elephant & Castle.
The project took place in only 29 months using innovative design and construction methods on a highly confined site. The building has sustainability at its heart, with 3 wind turbines which are anticipated to produce 8% of the building’s total energy demand anticipated to reduce energy demand by 73.5% compared to the required standard. Post-tensioned floors have saved significant quantities of concrete and CO² emissions.
