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.
This paper describes the design and construction of a five-storey underground car park in New Palace Yard in the immediate vicinity of the historic Palace of Westminster and
the Parliament buildings.
