The Gallery | Construction of One Angel Court

Images show the One Angel Court project in central London, designed by architect Fletcher Priest Architects and built by principal contractor Mace, under construction.  The project was completed this week.

The seventies office block in the crowded City of London grew from 21 to 27 storeys when it was revamped in a £125M scheme for developer Stanhope, increasing space from 18,000m2 to 28,000m2.

During work the building was stripped back to its core and rebuilt in glass with floor to ceiling glazing. Ceilings are higher in the additional six floors than in the original building, as plant needed greater heights than the existing office floors allowed.

“It’s such a pleasure to see the new building come to life in the city. This project has been a significant logistical challenge being placed right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of London but it was worth it,” said Mace project director Paul Dalton.

Narrow streets meant drivers delivering 12m long steel beams and columns, which had to be lifted into position one at a time. The site team needed extensive training using practice track and video of the road layout.

Mace was appointed to the project in 2014, and ensured that  96% of demolition waste was reused.
