Mixed Use Development for Westminster Bridge Road

wbr-cgi-V

111 Westminster Bridge Road is a new mixed use development going up on the site of a recently-demolished existing 1950s office building, bringing much-needed retail, office and leisure facilities to the area.

The new structure – built by McAleer & Rushe with Todd Architects – will feature an apart-hotel building with no less than 218 rooms across ten storeys (plus a basement), with a further seven-story wing also part of the new development. Office space, a restaurant and retail units will be made available to local businesses, and the building’s safety and aesthetics will be enhanced by Greenwood Louvre’s involvement.

Greenwood has designed and supplied a fire curtain arrangement for the new build; fire curtains are fire-resistant sheets that can descend from concealed housings in the event of a fire. They are used to prevent the spread of flames and retard the progress of smoke, compartmentalising a building should a fire break out. This makes it easier for fire fighters to approach the blaze, as well as creating longer escape times for building occupants.

A system of smoke vents and louvres are also on site thanks to Greenwood’s involvement, all in line with the architect’s desire to ensure the building is sympathetic to the local feel of the Lower Marsh Conservation Area (including the adjoining Grade II Listed Necropolis building at No. 121 Westminster Bridge Road, and the existing roofscape).
