A Landmark High-Rise Structure
Standing at 182m high, the Madison is one of the tallest towers in the UK. We were appointed to deliver a 54 storey superstructure, two-storey basement, and single-storey pavilion building.
Despite the inherent safety and logistics challenges presented by working on a structure of this nature, we successfully completed our works 4 weeks ahead of schedule.
Best Practice Safety
We used Ischebeck safety screens on the working levels of the tower to reduce the risk of falling tools and materials. We were also the first firm in Europe to use the new Plus Peri rail climbing staircase, which eliminated the need for ladder access to upper ‘wet trade’ areas. Our innovative safety approach was recognized by Balfour Beatty at their annual HSEQ awards.
Floor slabs were post tensioned which dramatically reduced the amount of steel reinforcement used in the building which also minimized the risks associated with material handling at height. Our use of post tensioning also reduced the volume of concrete and embodied carbon in the building.
