122 Leadenhall Street
Informally known as the "Cheesegrater", The Leadenhall Building at 122 Leadenhall Street is 225 metres tall and features a tapered glass façade on one side which reveals steel bracings and a ladder frame to emphasise its appearance. The flat side of the building is also encased in glass and houses the elevator shafts. These have been turned into an architectural feature in a vein similar to the neighbouring Lloyd of London building in that they deliberately exhibit the elevator machinery with bright orange painted counterweights and the actual elevator motors themselves.
Engaged by KONE Lifts we supervised the installation of eight high-rise bespoke passenger lifts and a large goods lift. Aspects of this work required installation engineering combined with project management and logistical supervision.
Ongoing work requires our expertise to be employed in the modification, modernisation and servicing of the lift infrastructure at Leadenhall Street where Health & Safety remains paramount given the large number of people working in this City of London location.
