“Landsec has worked closely with Momentum Transport on a number of major projects since its inception as a practice in 2012. During this time Momentum has repeatedly demonstrated the depth of their expertise and technical creativity in advising on and delivering a range of sound transport solutions.
At 21 Moorfields, a 560,000 sq ft office development in London EC2, Momentum devised a bespoke highway solution to meet the exacting access, delivery and security requirements of the principal tenant, a major international bank. Despite considerable initial local objections from third parties, who wished to promote an alternative arrangement, Momentum used their technical and diplomatic skills to persuade the majority of these objectors and ultimately the City Highway authority that its solution was preferable. Resolution of this issue was a key factor in retaining a financial major occupier in the City of London, who otherwise may have moved their HQ beyond Central London or possibly overseas.
In the West End Westminster Council, TfL and Landsec were facing a situation where a new City street, which all parties agreed should ideally be pedestrianised, was nevertheless required to accommodate bus provision, to prevent lengthy bus diversions continuing on a permanent basis, at substantial cost. Momentum demonstrated design ingenuity in remodelling and promoting a revised junction arrangement close to the site, which when implemented will obviate the necessity for future bus diversion and allow a provision of more convenient and efficient bus services, whilst freeing up the previously proposed route for an open space which the public can enjoy.”
