This paper describes the general design procedure and construction techniques adopted for this extensive development in central London. The sub-structure work involving the construction of deep basements and the adoption of various design and constructional techniques are described. The results of strain gauge measuring procedures adopted in the foundations are discussed together with the approach to the foundation design.
