Project: The Shard
Client: Sellar Property Group
Main Contractor: Ellmer Construction
Architect: Renzo Piano
Services: Mechanical & Electrical
Currently the tallest building in Western Europe, The Shard is an iconic London landmark.
REL was brought in to deliver mechanical and electrical services as part of the fit-out of the viewing galleries, restaurant and public spaces within a tight, business critical programme.
The scheme involved significant challenges, including long lead times on several procurement items, and limited access to level 69 of the building from a single service lift that only goes as far as level 55!
However, completion was delivered on time and our team was even on hand to create a ‘black out’ at the opening ceremony to ensure that the laser show could be performed to maximum effect.
