Works are progressing well on Midgard’s Royal Mint Gardens project. The development comprises of a thirteen-storey block containing 200 high value apartments, with retail and office space on the lower levels.

From an acoustics perspective the development is notable as it is built directly over the top of an existing railway line – you can see the tunnel running through the development in the photo on the right. This is made possible with incredibly high acoustic performance design incorporating anti-vibration bearings and double layer isolated concrete encasement of the railway.

Another acoustic consideration of this development is an elevated DLR line running adjacent to the site boundary, also shown in the photo.
