Amory Tower, previously known as the Madison, is a 53-storey, 181m, fin-clad residential tower built in the Isle of Dogs, London, containing 319 apartments.
The Tall Buildings Awards ‘Best Residential Tall Building Project Winner’ of 2022 is a 511,000ft² site with 70% of space dedicated to a landscaped public realm.
Brogan Group engaged early with the Contractor to enable an access solution for two programme critical components, the modular bathroom pods and the unitised wall system.
The Colossus Hoist combined with the Common Tower system accommodated the largest bathroom pods measuring 4.5x5x4.5m, which were transported from Italy and distributed directly into the 5m x3.1m Hoists. Coordination was taken to ensure the Pods and wall panels could fit through the Common Tower and its temporary runoff and onto the building’s floor plate.
The Common Tower system incorporated Twin Passenger/Goods Hoists as well as the Colossus Hoist. With one point of connection to the building a reduced number of cladding panels were left out of the initial build.
Brogan operated a tethered method of working at height on the project, with every component secured with designed lanyards or restraints to remove the risk of falling items, and solutions fabricated to restrain bespoke components such as landing gates, structural ties and structural legs
Paul Smith, Project Director
Brogan’s worked closely with the Balfour Beatty team to plan project logistics, build sequence and inform both the cladding, modularisation and internal fit-out package scopes. During the pre-contract services agreement of the project, early engagement was made with Brogans Group as a preferred supplier, to understand how the hoist and Common Tower could be designed and manufactured to best suit the project needs.
