Goodluck Hope is a new neighbourhood consisting of 804 homes along the River Thames in London, on the historic Leamouth peninsula. The name Goodluck Hope has its origins in the history of this part of London. There are records of ships docking here to unload their goods in 1297. Tea, spices, indigo, silk and Persian carpets were stored in warehouses.
All of the external steelwork for the project (90% of the visible steelwork) was hot dip galvanized and polyester powder coated. The steelwork that forms the “Crown” creates a prominent feature for the neighbourhood and provides a dramatic viewing platform at the top of the building overlooking the O2 Arena and River Thames. The main building was built using pre-cast concrete panels which enabled the steelwork to be erected without scaffolding making the design and fabrication critical to safe installation.
All steel members were galvanized including the metal decking and the maccalloy tension rods left as galvanized finish.
