Lots Road: construction powers up!
October 09, 2013
Construction work has started at the former power station, to become one of the largest residential developments on the north bank to create 706 homes, shops, restaurants, two public squares and three new bridges across Chelsea Creek.
The £1bn Hutchinson Whampoa Properties scheme is designed by Sir Terry Farrell, with Formation Architects transforming the iconic LUL power station.
Aworth Survey Consultants undertook the measured building survey of Lots Road Power Station, providing measured building survey drawings of the 7400m² power station, set over 3 levels and over 40m high.
Built in 1905 the historic Lots Road Power Station in Chelsea supplied power to London Underground up to 2001. Originally coal fired it used 700 tonnes of coal a day supplied to its own dock in Chelsea Creek off the Thames.
Since 2007 Aworth have worked and assisted with all the site’s various proposals, providing topographical, measured building surveys and hydrographical survey on the project.
