1 & 2 London Wall Place
Structural Steel Design Awards 2018 - Merit
London Wall Place is one of the most important recent developments in the City of London comprising two strikingly contemporary landmark commercial buildings providing 500,000m2 of Grade A office space.
Steel lies at the heart of the development, over 7,000 tonnes of it. Its use throughout is both impressive and dramatic; both buildings feature extensive cantilevered steelwork and deep transfer structures at Level 2 which allow them to extend well beyond the boundary of the two-storey common basement.

The large scheme, comprising two new office buildings combined with carefully integrated public realm, provides a new setting along 250m of London Wall. The use of steel has been instrumental in enabling the two buildings to cantilever out over the existing road. A 5m deep mega truss at level 2, with enormous steel members passing through it, offers the opportunity for a highly unusual new dining space.
