Lucas scoops another tall City signature building
Lucas painting teams are being deployed at another new tall City building currently under construction. This time we have secured the “shell and core” contract for 70 St Mary Axe, a 21 storey office development dubbed “The can of ham” for its multi scale design.
The new building is within a cluster of tall City buildings, each with their own distinctive shape and silhouette. It will have an elegant curving profile with eye-catching exterior fins, and will provide some 300,000 sq ft of office space. The building is targeting a BREEAM excellent rating.
The basement of the building has been constructed and for phase 1 we are applying protective coatings to all the concrete floors and dust sealing all surfaces. We will be painting all walls, blockwork and concrete throughout the area.
When the upper floors have been built we will be painting all the perimeter of the core, lobby and lift areas, and stairs and back of house areas.
The developer of the building is TH Real Estate and the Main Contractor is Mace. Completion is due at the end of 2018.
