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.
Battersea Power Station
As the largest construction project in Europe of its kind, Battersea Power Station is one of the more challenging projects GKR is working on. We supplied full external scaffolding around the entire height and perimeter of the building, plus a safe access solution to the 4 iconic wash towers which required complex engineering.
Damac Tower at Nine Elms in Vauxhall is a linked construction of two 50 floor blocks connected at the 18th floor.
GKR was tasked with installing a suspended cantilevered access platform between the two buildings for principal contractor, Multiplex.
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.
GKR needed to erect scaffold to complete work at high level on the mansard roof at W5. However, the retail space at ground level was still in use.
Access into the shops needed to be clear and pavement needed to remain in use for the general public.
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.
