Westfield Stratford City
London

A £1.4 billion mixed-use development located adjacent to London 2012 Olympic Park. It comprises Europe’s largest covered shopping mall with 3 major anchor stores (John Lewis, Marks & Spencer and Waitrose), 260 retail shop units, 80 places to eat and drink, 17 cinema screens (Vue), bowling alley, gymnasium, Casino (Aspers), three Hotels (Premier Inn, Holiday Inn and Staybridge Hotel), Grade A commercial offices and a 1,000 room student residential complex. There is parking for 5,000 cars and just under 2 million square feet of retail floor area. Complexities included building adjacent to and over three railway lines including the high-speed rail link to Europe.

MPN provided full structural design, documentation and site-inspection services and continues to provide structural advice on ongoing tenancy changes, further client changes to the development and current expansions to the centre.

John Lewis Department Store

An iconic five level department store at the Olympic Park end at Westfield Stratford City.
Built above a basement service yard and a Waitrose supermarket on 19.2m clear span transfer trusses at ground floor level to provide a column free space in the ground floor supermarket.

M&S Department Store

A four-level department store at the Stratford end which forms the gateway to Westfield Stratford City. It was built above an existing overground railway line and new LUL ticket hall, with a large cantilevering café structure and 30m span glass bridge to access the first floor of the shopping centre.

Main car park access ramp

Framed entirely in steel the locations of support columns were limited due to the ramps position above both a service yard entry and TFL bus layover facility. Transfer beams were introduced to revert the structure back to the standard 16mx8m grid at the first parking level.
