The Paddington Cube project in Central London presented us with an opportunity to deliver a utilities and works package at one of the most up-and-coming areas in London.

Project Challenges & Solutions:

The work carried out by blu-3 formed part of a larger project  that saw the building of a new 360,000 square foot cube that  sits on a three-storey podium above a newly created public  space in Paddington. 

Under the contract with Great Western Developments, blu-3 was tasked with carrying out utility works alongside various highways works. Installing and diverting a range of mains supplies in the area, our work facilitated improved access to the area and enabled the successful completion of the project. 

Scope:

  • Gas, water, electrical and telecommunications utility diversions as critical path item for the main build 
  • Pre-construction services consultancy to facilitate C4 quotations and methodology development 
  • Trial hole investigation package delivery for diversions 
  • New Supplies & road build
