Posted on by in News

The London Bridge Quarter (LBQ) development, a project that includes the iconic Shard, has celebrated another significant milestone with the topping out of the 17-storey Place building.

Providing 55,700m² of floor space, The Place is being developed by Sellar Property Group on behalf of LBQ, a partnership that includes the State of Qatar.

The steel framed structure has been designed by architect Renzo Piano and is scheduled for completion in Spring 2013.

Stephen Pycroft, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Mace, the principal contractor, said: “I am delighted that Mace has, once again, been appointed to deliver another highly complex construction project for the LBQ development.”

The steel framed building has an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating and will offer open and flexible office floor space. It provides 16 floor plates of between 1,950m² and 2,800m² and features naturally ventilated winter gardens on floors three to 12 and a landscaped roof terrace.

Steelwork for the project was fabricated, supplied and erected by Severfield-Rowen Structures.
