Recognising quality in all types of building projects, the prestigious accolades are the largest business-to-business awards in the building control sector.
Completed two weeks ahead of schedule in May 2016, The Monument Building is a 8,733m² nine-storey office-led development and was main contractor Skanska’s first London development.
Designed by architect Ken Shuttleworth’s Make, it features four terraces, a large reception area, state-of-the-art cycle storage and shower facilities. The building has been fitted with a ‘curtain’ of twisted, anodised aluminium fins on the south façade.
Structurally, the building has been designed with a steel frame based around one eccentrically positioned concrete core. Arup were the project’s structural engineer, while Severfield fabricated, supplied and erected 650t of steel for the project.
Skanska Project Director Brian Nunn said: “It has been a pleasure to be involved with The Monument project, a great project with a great team. Being awarded this prestigious award is a result of dedication and hard work from the whole team.”
“From conception, our aim was to produce a development with an emphasis on creating the best working environment for tenants, in a location where businesses want to be. The end result is a highly sustainable building that provides a beautiful backdrop to the nearby Monument.”
