We work on the most iconic construction projects in London and the South East, frequently needing to create new solutions to complex problems in order for our clients to meet their goals.
We pride ourselves on reliability, quality, collaboration and commitment.
You can see full details of our successful projects below.
As the tallest building ever to have been built in the EU at 1,016 ft, The Shard introduced new challenges to the GKR team.
Not only did we have to create bespoke solutions above 600 ft, but also every industry safety process needed to be reviewed in line with working at an unprecedented height.
This project required access to the existing “hot box” around the Mary Rose hull to allow for its modification.
This phase of development included the removal of the internal roof structure and modification to the walls between the ship and visitors.
Angel Court was expanding. The project required the contractor to increase the space from 18,000sq m to 26,000sq m.
Situated in close proximity to other buildings, we had the issue of noise pollution to manage requiring us to ensure we didn’t breach the set noise level.
Bloomberg is opening their European HQ in the City of London – an eight-story building that straddles a three-acre site and has 450,000 square feet of state of the art office space.
GKR were engaged due to the need for the highest industry standards to be met on a build that would have such status and presence in the City.
HSBC & Barclays
Both HSBC and the ‘Barclays Pinnacle Project’ provided a similar challenge, which required GKR to draw on our experience of working at height from the Shard.
The HSBC project required a lifting scaffold capable of lifting 5 tonnes, 677 feet above ground level.
Tottenham Hotspur F.C.
Tottenham Hotspur Football and Athletic Club are building their new ground adjacent to the existing stadium. GKR installed two external staircases to be used by supporters on match days.
The north staircase is the largest single stair case structure in the UK that has been installed using the Layher system.
