Battersea Power Station

Project summary

Taking place between 2017 to 2022, EPG was appointed by Keltbray Structures Ltd as a Specialist Consultant to undertake a detailed design for Type B waterproofing protection measures to the proposed basement for *Phase 3A Redevelopment at Battersea Power Station.

The £9bn project will see the creation of a vibrant, mixed-use development, a new neighbourhood and business quarter for London, serviced by a Zone 1 extension to the London Underground Northern Line and the restoration of the Grade II listed Power Station.

The overall project is divided into eight phases, with each designed by a range of specialist architects. These include SimpsonHaugh and Partners and De Rijke Marsh Morgan (dRMM) in Circus West Village (Phase 1), WilkinsonEyre in Battersea Power Station (Phase 2), and Foster + Partners and Gehry Partners in The Electric Boulevard, Battersea Roof Gardens and Prospect Place, (Phase 3)


• Temporary works such as crane bases and links between Phase IIIA and the Pump House Lane developments
• Installation issues throughout the build became present which were not evident at the design stage.

The solution

• We worked alongside installing contractors and product manufacturers to develop detailed sections for the project
• Ensuring we worked closely and collaboratively with the design team throughout the build to resolve and tailor our plans to new designs.

The results

The Phase 3A site is situated in the south-west corner of the overall development and incorporates a three-storey basement that comprises predominantly car parking, plant rooms, water storage tanks and storage space, but also includes a kitchen area dedicated to hotel use in the north-west corner of the basement.
With Battersea Power Station being at the heart of one of central London’s largest, most visionary, and eagerly anticipated new developments, which will see this vast 42-acre (over 8 million sq ft) former industrial brownfield site become home to a community of homes, shops, bars, restaurants, cafes, offices and over 19 acres of public space.
The first chapter of the development, Circus West Village, was completed in 2017 and is now home to over 1,800 residents, as well as an eclectic mix of bars, restaurants, and leisure facilities, including a cinema and theatre.
