Cannon Place, London – Projects
- MCM Architecture
- CMS Cameron McKenna
Cannon Place is a distinctive air-rights building by Foggo Associates Architects located in the City of London directly above Cannon Street Mainline and Underground Stations. Eight storeys high the building has large floor plates of almost 50,000 square feet. The building is also virtually column free with long span floor beams 21.5metres long and a distinctive external structural skeleton.
CMS Cameron Mckenna acquired three levels of floor for their new London HQ. The works involved full CAT B fit out including two large feature staircases linking the three floor plates. The ‘scissor’ staircases were made more challenging because of the complex structure that they took support from. A detailed REVIT model was developed to facilitate the process and allow full services integration to be explored prior to commencing on site.
Access for construction was particularly challenging with no provision for large items to be delivered into the building and Elliott Wood developed and agreed a gantry type solution with Network Rail/Building Owners and City of London. Site works were complex with poor access given the railway station and occupied floors immediately below.
