Located in the heart of London’s West End, The Londoner is a major new development on the world-renowned Leicester Square. Set to open in 2020, the luxurious 5-star hotel will offer 350 rooms and 35 suites, multiple restaurants and lounges, a rooftop bar and underground spa with swimming pool, Odeon cinema and a 1,000-capacity ballroom.

At 30m deep and with six levels below ground, this will be the deepest habitable-grade commercial building basement in London, and among the deepest in the world. Situated within a constrained site measuring less than 50m by 50m, 65,000m3 of London clay has been excavated prior to construction, enough to fill 26 Olympic swimming pools. The basement will house exceptional leisure and banqueting facilities including a two-screen, Odeon cinema, with a further nine levels above ground.

Meters UK supplied Water and Gas Meters for the project.
