Embankment Place: Building Over Charing Cross Station

The design and construction of buildings in the unused space above existing activities and structures has become an acceptable method of creating development sites in city centres and other areas where space is at a premium. The creation of these buildings is heavily influenced by the engineering. The ability of the engineer to respond in a creative way to demands that are outside the boundaries of normal commercial development is an essential ingredient to the success of any such project. The development of the design of the building over Charing Cross Station and the resolution of some of the design issues provides an interesting example of these engineered designs.
