Works are well underway at 148 Old Street and with the vast majority of the demolition works now complete, Wates Construction have taken control over the entire site and permanent framework is being installed at a quick pace.
The latest site images taken from one of the recently erected tower cranes, capture steel trusses fabricated by Bourne Steel being fixed to the columns around the perimeter of the building. Once complete these trusses will provide support to a glazed brick façade designed by Orms Architects. The reinforced concrete lift shaft and shear wall extensions have been constructed, and are ready for the steel rooftop extension to take shape in the coming months.
The extensive refurbishment will deliver in excess of 150,000 ft2 of collaborative office space for Great Portland Estates, and is due to complete in late 2017.
