Skanska’s landmark office for City of London
A new and prestigious office development is rapidly taking shape in the heart of the City of London. The Walbrook comprises ten above ground floors and three basement levels offering 38,090m² of office space and a further 3,251m² for retail.
The project, which occupies a prime 1.6 acre site near Cannon Street railway station, has been designed by Foster and Partners. The site was formerly occupied by three buildings, Walbrook House, St Swithin’s House and Granite House.
Working on behalf of main contractor Skanska, steelwork contractor William Hare will erect more than 4,500t of steelwork for the project, which amounts to more than 4,900 pieces.
Work started on site during June 2007 and the completion date for this eye-catching structure is December this year.
