10 Lime Street is a high specification retail, commercial and office development in the heart of London’s finance district. The structure boasts 43,000 sqft (3,995 sqm) of Grade-A office space, spanning seven storeys.
Bourne Steel erected 615 tonnes of steelwork and installed 5,600m2 of holoribdecking in a logistically challenging environment but all steelwork was completed on time, during a 17-week construction programme.
The main contractor, ISG had permission to close Lime Street every day from 10am to 6pm, enabling the delivery and unloading of the structural steel. Without this road closure the job would have been extremely difficult, as Lime Street is very narrow with little passing space.
Further logistical challenges included carefully managing the size of the loads as there were no lay-down areas. An onsite tower crane enabled all the steelwork to be erected, which included cellular beams for all floors.
