In late 1984, a consortium of financial companies joined together to initiate master planning for the redevelopment of Canary Wharf, located in London’s Docklands, to create a modem zone of infrastructure and new office buildings to serve as a new centre for financial trading. The consortium, Canary Wharf Development Companies (CWDC), including First Boston Properties, Credit-Suisse, and Morgan Stanley International, engaged the architectural-engineering firm of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) in January 1985 to work with themselves and the London Dockland Development Corporation (LDDC) in developing: (1) an overall masterplan for the entire project; (2) the architectural-engineering construction documents for the entire infrastructure works; and (3) prototypes for some of the initial office building blocks which were to be developed. D.S. Korista and J.G. Burns

Canary Wharf: Construction Working Practices

Canary Wharf: Construction Working Practices

The Canary Wharf project comprises the construction of 12.5 M ft2 of office and retail space in 24 buildings. The buildings are grouped into four neighbourhoods focused around the major public spaces known as Westferry Circus, Founders Court (Cabot Square), Docklands Square (Canada Square), and Blackwall Place (Churchill Place). For reference during construction, the buildings are known by a number and a prefix related to the above grouping, e.g. the building known as FC2 is building 2 in the Founders Court (Cabot Square) neighbourhood. Phase 1 of the project, comprising approximately 4.5 M ft2 net of office and retail facilities and the supporting infrastructure, is divided into 10 fairly distinct building parcels, as follows: 1: Westferry Circus and West India Place 2: infrastructure comprising roads and watercuts west of Docklands Square (Canada Square), Founders Court (Cabot Square), and Blackwall Place (Churchill Place carparks).

Building Performance and Cost-in-Use

Building Performance and Cost-in-Use

Arup Research & Development has carried out a series of studies commissioned by the Building Research Establishment on the subject of building performance and costs-in-use. This paper gives a brief commentary on the results of that research, explores the implications and application thereof in the context of the definition of client requirements, and outlines a methodology whereby these performance requirements may be taken into account in an explicit manner in the design and property management processes.
