The Influence of Party Walls on Site Redevelopment in Central London

The paper describes typical structural problems associated with work to party walls in the City of London. It is divided into two parts. The first covers general aspects of stability, lateral restraint, flues, fire escapes and foundations in relation to party walls; the second part gives n case history of the works to the boundaries and party walls in connection with the redevelopment of 55 Gracechurch Street during 1990-1992. The paper demonstrates the importance of carrying out a comprehensive programme of survey and exploratory works in advance in order to minimise problems during construction. A.J. Seymour
