Standing proudly in central London, 122 Leadenhall Street, nicknamed the Leadenhall Building, graces the skyline at 225 meters (738 ft) in height. Crafted by Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, this architectural marvel opened its doors in July 2014. Affectionately known as The Cheesegrater, its iconic wedge-shaped design mirrors that of its culinary namesake. Amidst the bustling financial district of the City of London, it joins the ranks of other towering structures like 20 Fenchurch Street, 22 Bishopsgate, and The Scalpel, showcasing the dynamic evolution of the construction landscape.
Our Abseiling Work
City Abseiling Ltd played a significant role in the Leadenhall project from 2012 to 2014. The architectural marvel features a unique tapering, perimeter-braced diagrid structure, integrating office floors with a northern support core housing lifts, utilities, and essential infrastructure.
The primary structural grid, measuring 16m x 10.5m, enables expansive spans with only six internal columns on the largest floors, showcasing engineering prowess. The exposed steelwork distinguishes office and service spaces visually.
The project architect elaborated on the development of the external mega-frame, allowing for a non-standard floor plan. This strategic approach resulted in an expansive public space at the base, highlighting the project's commitment to both aesthetics and functionality.
City Abseiling Ltd's involvement in the Leadenhall Project began in 2012 and continued until 2014.
We collaborated with other façade companies deploying over 20 skilled technicians on-site. Our tasks ranged from intricate Mega Bracket installations on mega floors, requiring numerous abseilers due to steel beam complexities, to meticulous glass installations and mastic works from ground to the 52nd floor of the Mega frame structure, meeting client-specific requirements.
An essential ongoing task involved comprehensive water testing, ensuring the structural integrity and safety of the high-rise Leadenhall as other teams progressed with their tasks.
Our technicians installed miles of gaskets on rear lift shafts from ground to level 47, involving dedicated day and night shifts to maintain the project's continuous progress.
Our efforts extended to installing steel safety nets on levels 47 to 52 at the rear, emphasizing our commitment to safety and precision.
Further milestones included installing and fitting loft sections in Leadenhall's plant room (levels 47-52), responding to unique design constraints limiting access for other trades.
Additionally, City Abseiling contributed to the project's intricacies by assisting in glass installation on levels 1 and 2 beneath escalators. These tasks required adept utilization of beam clamps for rigging, located on the undersides of beams adjacent to soffit panels.
Our role extended to internal lift shaft cleaning and glass replacement, showcasing City Abseiling Ltd's comprehensive expertise in complex and multifaceted projects like the Leadenhall masterpiece.
Bracket install and set-out
One remarkable feat achieved by City Abseiling was the meticulous planning, design, and fabrication of a purpose-commissioned Abseil Rig tailored to the specific needs of the site. This temporary rigging davit arm served as a pivotal tool for abseilers, enabling them to gain access to the facade with precision and safety. Positioned at a crucial three-meter distance from the structure, it provided the necessary location and orientation for abseilers to install the buttresses, which were lifted from the tower crane.
In essence, City Abseiling's involvement in the One Nine Elms project embodies their commitment to delivering innovative solutions and impeccable craftsmanship in the realm of architectural construction. Their contributions are a testament to the intricate tapestry of skills and expertise
that converge in the creation of iconic skyscrapers like One Nine Elms.
One Nine Elms, an imposing mixed-use skyscraper scheme, is currently taking shape in the vibrant district of Nine Elms, London. Initially conceived by Wanda One, a UK-based subsidiary of Dalian Wanda, the project witnessed a significant transition in ownership when it was acquired by R&F Properties, another prominent chinese corporation, in 2018. This dynamic development has been meticulously designed by the esteemed architectural firm Kohn Pedersen Fox.
City Abseiling embarked on a crucial role within the One Nine Elms project, commencing its involvement in June 2020, and as of the writing of this article in September 2022, remains an integral part of the ongoing construction process.
Their multifaceted contributions span a spectrum of complex tasks that have been integral to the project's success.
Among the myriad challenges undertaken by City Abseiling from the project's inception are comprehensive water tests conducted across all levels and elevations, alongside the intricate installation of waterproofing systems.
Their expertise extends to the precise placement of glass elements, including crane tie locations, on various levels of the tower. Moreover, they have played an important role in the installation and replacement of stone units, encompassing all levels and elevations. The replacement of glass panels at multiple levels and elevations further demonstrates their proficiency, as does their work on glass unit adjustments and the installation of podium sides, spanning from level 6 to the pinnacle.
