Latest Canary Wharf towers taking shape
Steelwork is nearing completion on the two latest high-rise towers in London Docklands.
Provisionally known as D1/D2, the largest of the structures is a 14-storey commercial block which has required 2,300t of structural steelwork.
B3 is a hybrid building as its design incorporates 10-storeys of concrete-framed structure, accommodating hotel and leisure space, with four-levels of steel-framed offices on top. A total of 880t of steel is being erected for this scheme.
Working on behalf of Canary Wharf Contractors, Elland Steel Structures is fabricating, supplying and erecting the steelwork for both buildings.
The buildings form part of the Wood Wharf development which aims to create a new neighbourhood for the capital. It is set to bring 20,000 jobs to the region and boast one of the largest clusters of tech and creative businesses in the UK.
