Woolwich Civic Centre

Woolwich, LONDON

As part of an overall regeneration programme in Woolwich town centre, a new civic centre has been built which houses the majority of the local council services under one roof, whilst providing a new library and business centre.

The new structure is a steel framed building which consists of six floors built around two main concrete cores and one smaller central concrete riser. Aesthetic features of the build include exposed internal columns and a glazed gallery to the purpose built rooftop plant area.

Billington Structures, working on behalf of main contractor Wates, has erected over 1, 300 tonnes of structural steel to form a six storey, beam and column structure. The steel erection progressed in tandem with the installation of the precast units, creating a three phase erection sequence. Whilst the precast units were being installed, Billington erected an adjacent phase up to the third level, in preparation for the follow on trades.
