I think the position is a bit more complicated if these are roadworks rather than straighforward building construction.
If the works are on a RedRoute, Transport for London is in charge. If the works are not on a Red Route, the works are subject to the policy of the local borough (presumably Southwark).
If the works are on Stamford Street
, this is a Red Route and under TFL's control.
There are powers for TFL to carry out roadworks at night, but they are supposed to balance the need for the roadworks to be carried out at a time which does not impact traffic against the disruption to local residents.
If such an order has been made, I'm not sure Southwark have the power to do anything about it. However, I agree with Karen that a call to the Southwark Noise team is still a good plan.
Have you also tried looking at the Road Works Register ?
