A Landmark 22-storey office Building in London’s Central Business District
Affectionately referred to as the “Can of Ham”, 70 St Mary Axe is a strikingly curvilinear form that add another distinctive shape to the its high-rise neighbours in the “Square Mile”. Located on the site of a former low-rise block of offices and retail units, the project was initially granted planning permission in 2008, with construction beginning in 2015. The project was completed four years later.
Our scope included the construction of a three-storey, 30m deep basement and a 90m high 22 storey concrete core, as well as the floors.
