London landmark reaches halfway point

Posted on by in News

The City of London’s latest skyscraper, 20 Fenchurch Street, has reached a significant landmark as the steel erection programme has passed the halfway mark.

The unique flared structure, which has its largest floorplates on the upper levels, will eventually consist of 38 storeys, which equates to a height of 160m, and will accommodate 62,709m² of floor space.

Designed by architect Rafael Viñoly, the project is a joint venture between Land Securities and Canary Wharf Group. William Hare is fabricating and erecting the structural steel frame for the building.

Including rebar, the project will ultimately require 24 miles of steel, and the frame will consist of some 4,500 separate sections.

Taking the structure’s frame past the halfway stage to its final top out height, is a team of 60 erectors, deckers and supervisors.
