british museum careys basements substructures concrete

British Museum

Careys were awarded the substructure package for the World Conservation and Exhibitions Centre (WCEC) project, which entailed a 38,000m3 excavation and the construction of a 18m deep reinforced concrete (RC) basement, split over five levels, with a further sub floor providing space for lift pits and motor rooms. In addition to this grade three basement, key features of our two-year contract included heavy temporary works and construction of an isolated radiography structure.
