Newfoundland is a 60-storey residential building which will be situated on the western side of Canary Wharf estate and bound by Westferry Road to the west, Middle Dock to the east and Bank Street to the south. The slim diamond shape of the tower is determined by the narrow footprint of the site. The building is supported and braced by the external diagrid structure of the façade along with numerous deep reinforced concrete piles penetrating into the chalk below.
The concrete core is currently 75% complete at level 46, rising over 160 metres above street level. The steel diagrid and intermediate floors are following closely behind with the cladding installation progressing beneath. Fit out works have started to the first ten apartment floors of the tower. The first stage of the fit out is forming the central corridor and services risers in preparation for the apartments’ incoming utilities. Once this is complete the internal party walls, constructed out of plasterboard dry lining, are formed giving each apartment type its own distinct layout. Next, internal walls then form the apartments’ bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens. Each floor has a minimum of 10 apartments and there are 14 different apartment types across the tower. An apartment has been selected on the third floor of the tower for early completion, to benchmark a quality standard for the build.
The Newfoundland structure will continue to climb towards its summit of 225 metres, becoming more and more visible across the London skyline. The next stage of the fit out process involves installing the utilities within each apartment, including heating and cooling, water for the kitchens and bathrooms, electricity and satellite TV / communications.
