BROMLEY SOUTH CENTRAL, MIXED USE PPP DEVELOPMENT-LONDON
In a Public Private Partnership with London Borough of Bromley, St Mark’s Square is set to transform the southern end of Bromley town centre, one minute from Bromley South railway station.
The mixed-use Public Private Partnership scheme development includes a landscaped public plaza surrounded by a nine screen multiplex VUE cinema, 25,000 sq ft of cafés and restaurants including PizzaExpress, Dean’s Diner, Prezzo, Las Iguanas, Nando’s and Turtle Bay, a 130-bed Premier Inn hotel, 200 private and affordable apartments and a new 400 space secure underground car park.
The development will create over 200 jobs in Bromley, and provide a total of £220 million GVA (Gross Value Added) to the local economy over the next 10 years.
The residential element of the scheme is being built to Code for Sustainable Homes (CfSH) Level 4. Energy costs to residents will be reduced by 30 % through better insulation, good ventilation and the provision of an onsite combined heat and power system. The remaining building elements deliver an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating.
The finished development will comprise 200 residential apartments, a 130 bedroom hotel, a nine screen cinema, nine retail units and a 400 space underground car park.
Atom Consultants is providing numerous services on this ongoing project.
We carried out the structural design of the upper levels of the Residential Tower block. A National Rail line runs in close proximity to the Tower Block, so we were also appointed to undertake the Category 3 Independent Design Checks on all Temporary Works Designs which interfaced with the National Rail Assets.
On the residential low- rise building and basement car park, we conducted BIM co-ordination works of structure and services, as well as various areas of co-ordination of incoming underground services.
We also did the structural design and co-ordination for the auditorium seating for the 9- screen cinema building and conducted Design Checks and Reviews of sub-contractor proposals.
Other elements of design included: green-wall support framework; plant room access platforms; chiller plant enclosure steel frame; the upgrade of the link bridge to the adjacent buildings. All of these elements were co-ordinated within the BIM model for the project which we developed and maintained on behalf of our client McLaren Construction.
This project is set to complete early 2018.
Atom Consultants have assisted us in many ways to resolve numerous challenges presented by the very complex project being delivered here at St Mark’s Square in Bromley. Their use of BIM has helped to highlight and resolve countless issues which would otherwise have caused real problems on site. They have also developed modular components for sections of the building which have dramatically reduced the number of crane lifts and thereby releasing the cranes to carry out other essential work. What’s more, each timeline on information being issued was met which is important when the project is at its busiest time!

The 46,000 m2, £59 million Trinity Walk Shopping Centre in Wakefield West Yorkshire, described by Wakefield Council as “the most important City Centre development for more than 20 years”, boasts more than 40 stores and 1000 car parking spaces right in the heart of Wakefield, transforming the city into a sub-regional shopping destination.
ASDA (part of the Wal-Mart Stores Inc.) has long strived to become 100% energy efficient, hence they were the first in UK to build a sustainable timber -framed store, which is 20% more energy efficient than their traditional stores, as well as lowers the store’s carbon footprint by as much as 50 per cent. We developed the designs for the prototype, which were to become a blueprint for all ASDA’s future eco-stores.
Creating a perfect canvas for the Royal Bank of Scotland brand, their 11.431 m2 customer-facing facility is a landmark building on the edge of the Spinningfields development in Manchester.
