June 2013 - Topping Out Special

Welcome to an extra special edition of The Leadenhall Building newsletter.

Topping Out

The Leadenhall Building reached its highest point this month and in-keeping with tradition, a topping-out ceremony was held on 18 June to celebrate this major milestone.

Joining the festivities, Mayor of London, Boris Johnson said: “The Leadenhall Building is the latest landmark to grace London’s iconic skyline, demonstrating our city’s ability to design and construct world-class architecture. This ambitious project has created jobs in London and elsewhere across the UK supporting great British manufacturing.”

Looking Forward

Over the next month glazing works will continue to progress. The main office glazing will progress up to level 39 and the north core glazing will reach level 36.

At the top of the building the steelwork has reached it’s highest point. Key sections of plant, including cooling towers, generators, boilers and switch rooms are being installed in the attic levels.

Inside the building floor tiling will continue to progress above level 20 in lift lobbies and washrooms. Fit out of the washrooms is progressing above level eight and the ceilings are being finished in the north core areas.

Lift installation is in progress, with about 20 lifts already installed in low, medium and high rise lift zones.
