The Gallery | Battersea Power Station chimneys milestone

The rebuilding of the iconic chimneys at Battersea Power Station has reached a critical point.

Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC) announced that the south west chimney had reached 25m above the brickwork, allowing work to begin to dismantle the other three.

All four towers will be rebuilt by next summer to look identical to the originals. This is part of phase two of the mammoth Nine Elms development in south London.

Buro Happold Engineering is playing a key role in the chimneys project, along with Skanska and Bedfordshire-based Beroa Bierrum.

BPSDC chief executive Rob Tincknell said: “Reaching the halfway point on the first chimney to be rebuilt is another significant milestone for everyone involved in the redevelopment of Battersea Power Station.

“We are very proud of this achievement and with work to start soon on the other three chimneys, I would like to offer the teams on site every best wish for the rest of the project.”
