30 St Mary Axe

Completion of the core and shell of this new 590 foot tall office building at 30 St Mary Axe was in 4Q of 2003, but fit-out continued into 2004. Swiss Re occupies floors 2-15 as their headquarters; the remaining space in this 40-story, 500,000 sf building is by a variety of tenants.

Considered the first environmentally-progressive tall building in London, the circular plan of the building widens as it rises from the ground and then tapers towards its apex, partly as a design response to the relatively small site, and partly in order to deflect wind and help maintain pedestrian comfort and safety at the base of the building.

VDA provided consulting services through the construction administration phase for 23 elevators arranged in low-, mid- and high-rise banks.
