The Leadenhall Building is located in central London. The 50-storey tower rises to a height of 224.5 metres (802 feet).
The Leadenhall Building’s erection was one of the fastest pieces of large-scale construction to take place in the UK. The skyscraper is informally known as the Cheesegrater because of its distinctive wedge shape.
The façades are supplemented with an internal layer of double-glazing, forming a cavity, which incorporates the structural frame.
Installation consisted of the following:
Façade area: 75.000m²
