Client: London Borough of Tower Hamlets
Programme: 20 weeks
Description: New Build
Lengard were delighted to build a new pavilion and café in Victoria Park, Hackney, complementing the Victorian origins of the park.
London has thousands of years of history and it was no surprise therefore that
the ground works were not straight forward: firstly, the area power supply cable went right through the middle of the foundations; and secondly, we discovered a Black Death burial pit!
After the all clear from the Infection Diseases Institute, the solution was vibro-piling to consolidate the ground and support the 12-sided structure.
