The Tealby Building is a nine storey clinic and office building for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home. The building has a basement level and eight storeys above ground. The site is located within the Battersea Dogs and Cats Home just off Battersea Park Road in Wandsworth, South West London. The site lies between two existing railway lines; a low level goods rail line to the North East and Southern railway line constructed over the Middle Arches to the West.
The superstructure of the building consists of reinforced concrete flat slabs spanning up to 8.3m between reinforced concrete walls and columns. The flat slab system offers great flexibility to the arrangement of the partitions and to the services. Due to the poor ground condition and to minimise effects on the adjacent buildings and railway lines, the building is founded on a piled raft foundation system. There has been no issue with movement to the adjacent structures during the construction of the basement.
