This paper describes the design of an office block over Fenchurch Street Station in the City of London. The way in which the design was developed over a number of years is emphasised. Special considerations involved in building over a station are outlined. The alternative structural forms considered for the office block and the reasons for the adoption of a design in which most of the building spans nearly 30 m across the station are described. A description of the design of 2.5-3.5 m diameter hand-dug piles and of the analysis of the interaction of these piles with 4m-deep transfer beams is given.
