The Design and Construction of Bush Lane House

Bush Lane House is unique in this country in two respects: its external structure is stainless steel and water filled. The building lies immediately above the projected route of the London Transport Fleet Line on a site later to be used for the construction of the new underground. This paper traces the development of the design and touches on some of the more interesting aspects of the structure: the foundations, the design and analysis of the 1attice; the nature of the stainless steel and its fabrication; the water cooling system anda brief account of the erection of the lattice.

Underground Car Park at the House of Commons, London: Geotechnical Aspects

The basic problem was to construct an underground car park 18.5 m deep in close proximity to the priceless historic buildings of the Palace of Westminster, including Westminster Hall the Houses of Commons and Big Ben Clock Tower. The problem was accentuated by the fact that there is no building over the car park and therefore the full effects of the free heave of the London clay will be realised.
