Grays Inn Road, London

Bennett Construction Ltd. have recently completed a mixed use scheme on Grays Inn Road, Central London for Grays Inn Homes Ltd. The scheme involved the complete demolition of the existing buildings on 24-28 Grays Inn Road and the new build of two commercial units at basement and ground floor with 14 apartments on floors 1-5.

The site is located very close to Chancery Lane tube station and presented many logistical challenges during the construction phase. The site is on a red route (no stopping at any time) and is beside a TfL bus stop and tube station.  A detailed traffic management plan was agreed with TfL and London Borough of Camden and was closely managed throughout the works by the Bennett Management team to ensure efficient working on site whilst ensuring no disruption to vehicular or pedestrian traffic. The only access was from the front of the site (Grays Inn Rd) as party wall agreements had to be put in place on all other sides of the site prior to works commencing.

The demolition phase of the works involved significant temporary works design and close liaison with the owners of the adjoining buildings. The structural frame of the building is concrete and the façade is a combination of brick, stone and rainscreen cladding. The works were  carried out on a Design Build basis.
