					Block W4 Project Update: September 2012
Dear neighbour,

W4 Regent Street – a Crown Estate development managed by Exemplar

August saw good progress on the ground works to the W4 project. Mini piling to the higher levels
commenced - with 38 piles to install in total. The capping beam around the top of the sub-basement was
completed allowing for excavation of the basement level 2 to continue to its final level. The Geothermal
Boreholes are now complete with all 27 of the geothermal boreholes installed and tested. August also saw
the installation of the first pile caps which provide a platform for the new building to ‘sit on’ and prevent the
building sinking.
To date, approximately 3200 m3 of excavated material has been removed to allow the formation of the
basement and new sub-basement for the building.
