Book of reference Plot Number:  
  British Grove
Occupier reference:  
The proposed tunnel's Centreline of Work No. 1a and Limits of deviation for Work No. 1a are within or in very close proximity to the piled foundations of British Grove Sound Recording Studios.
NOTE:The depth of the piles vary between 16 and 24m. The soffit of the tunnel as shown is shallower than at least obne of the existing piles and within the pressure bulb of a number of other existing piles!
The recording facility relies on lack of noise and vibrations percolating the structure and entering the recording studios. Whilst these have been isolated with resiliant pads the vibrations and noise during construction of the tunnel in close proximity may disrupt the day-to-day operation of the studios.
