Royal Arsenal Riverside


Client: Berkeley Homes East Thames
Architect: EPR Architects / Bond Bryan Architects / Architecture 519 / Simon Bowden Architects

Royal Arsenal Riverside is one of South East London’s most exciting riverside addresses, occupying a prime location along the River Thames with a forthcoming on-site Crossrail Station and buzzing retail hub. Astute Fire are currently engaged in the development of the fire strategy and construction site wide fire safety issues (HSG 168 requirements) for the ͞B-Blocks and more recently we have also been appointed to the A-Blocks and further design works on the B-Blocks. The works have involved the following aspects:

  • A bespoke design approach was adopted for the external cladding system.
  • CFD modelling of the common corridors, which allowed a more efficient smoke ventilation strategy to be developed.
  • Open plan apartment modelling.
  • General fire strategy issues.
