65 Davies Street is a commercial building in London’s Mayfair district, offering 67,568 sq ft of office space divided over six floors. The development is located over Bond Street West station which will be on the new crossrail line, connecting Canary Wharf in the east to Heathrow Airport in the west.
The site is an urban block bounded by streets with retail outlets, historic buildings, offices, and embassies.
Because the project integrates the new office building with the infrastructure of the Crossrail Station below, this development was particularly challenging in terms of acoustics and vibration isolation.
To prevent groundborne noise and vibration disturbance within the office spaces, Stravibase VHS structural bearings designed with four layers of natural rubber, steel plates, and integrated failsafe mechanism were installed. Lateral bearings and floating slab bearings complement the design and help shield the building from rail induced vibrations.
