Meinhardt UK provided a structural engineering peer review of this 50 storey office to aid Skanska in their tender for the construction of the building.

An independent structural analysis was completed to comment on the scale of differential axial shortening and drift that can be expected during construction. The design requires that this movement (of about 400mm) is compensated for during construction.

A number of structural engineering options and alternative details were developed in order for the contractor to propose value engineered savings to the developer (British Land).
