Kingspan Access Floors Gains Leadenhall Building Contract

Kingspan Access Floors is supplying over 29,000 sq m of floor panels to the 224 metre high Leadenhall Building, which is set to become an iconic part of the London skyline.

Kingspan is to install RMG flooring throughout the 52-storey skyscraper, which has been informally referred to as the Cheesegrater due to its distinctive shape.

Main contractors Laing O’Rourke have scheduled practical completion of the building’s shell and core by mid 2014. Kingspan began installation work in January and is due to complete the project in November. Flooring for the Level 2 reception area has been manufactured to a heavy grade to receive stone finishes.

The development’s tapering shape, which when viewed from the west will appear to ‘lean away’ from St Paul’s Cathedral, delivers varied sizes of floor plates, all offering spectacular views over London. To work around the tight constraints of narrow and densely populated streets, Laing O’Rourke has ensured that much of the structure – including the cores, basement and building services – will be manufactured off site.

The project is piloting the application of radio frequency identification (RFID) software – which uses data tags attached to building components to allow them to be tracked through manufacture, supply and installation. This will enable preventative action in the event of any delays downstream.
