51 Lime Street, London

Market Sector: Commercial Offices
Location: London
Country: England

Trade Contractor: Whitby Bird
Steelwork Contractor: William Hare Ltd

Completion Date: June 2007

Project Overview:

The office development is in the heart of London's financial district, right next to St. Paul's Cathedral and directly opposite Lloyd's Insurance.

It consists of two towers, one 28 stories above ground (the Tower), one 11 stories (the Fenchurch Avenue Building), and a double level basement covering the whole site. The existing basement has been refurbished and houses an auditorium and gymnasium as well as plant and car-parking. Each tower is a steel frame structure with a central concrete core.

The structural design satisfies the specific requirements of the tenant. The concrete cores are sufficiently robust to provide for interior space that is completely column free throughout both buildings. Working collaboratively, with significant input from trade contractors, Whitbybird and steelwork contractor William Hare were part of a team that deliver the successful design and construction to a tight schedule using Tekla Structures.
