We hold a community meeting on the second Monday of the month. Our next community meeting will be on 11 July beginning at 6pm in Cantillon’s site office, which is next to the entrance of Queen’s Quay, behind the blue site hoarding. All neighbours are welcome to attend and ask the demolition team questions.
Summary of work

The archaeological excavations continue on both the north and south sides of the site. Roman structures have been uncovered in three of the pits including a Roman Bath House directly adjacent to Huggin Hill with Victorian structures as well. Excavations are also taking place adjacent to Queenhithe. Scaffolding has been erected to continue with the installation of the rain screen cladding down to the basement level. This is to be installed using hand tools and drills to fix it to the wall in the same way as was done on the other five floors. Ground floor works have also been carried out to Queens Quay to allow for the removal of the first floor slab from Queensbridge House.

Planned works The first floor slab of Queensbridge House is to be removed in the middle of the week commencing 4 July. This will be cut out using concrete techniques and the use of a crane to lift out the individual sections. This will directly impact neighbours, particularly those overlooking the flat roof of Queensbridge House. We apologise in advance for any disruption this will cause. The next meeting is scheduled for 11 July and we look forward to seeing you then.
