Award Recognised Project

Hawley Wharf

Delivering a multi-award-winning masterplan regeneration scheme

Walsh has been involved from the conceptual and master planning stage with this landmark scheme in the heart of Camden to transform the derelict canal and surrounding area into high-quality commercial, retail and residential spaces. We have been able to contribute valuable local knowledge to the team, working closely with the architects, contractor and the client.

The most challenging building in this exciting project is the New Camden Canal Market which overlooks Regent’s Canal. Walsh proposed an efficient frame using post-tensioned slabs to achieve a typical 3m cantilevered slab edge. Additionally, we have used our expertise in the design of complex basements to deliver a three-storey top-down basement situated between the active viaducts. This space boasts an impressive 10m first storey that is now home to an underground theme park equipped with a rollercoaster.

Due to the location and layout of the site we needed to liaise with and satisfy a number of third parties including Network Rail, National Grid and The Canal and River Trust. By remaining flexible and responsive at all times we have been able to help the client to achieve the architectural aspirations within the very tight site constraints presented.
