The project involved 70,000 construction workers and took place amongst existing office buildings, so required comprehensive noise management.
Two daily quiet periods were scheduled, and businesses were notified of any particularly noisy periods in advance. Businesses were also able to book quiet periods when this was essential for their operations. The project team was awarded a Considerate Constructors Scheme silver award for its efforts in considering the needs of existing neighbours.
The project also incorporated segregation and recycling of materials, use of water transport to avoid traffic congestion and has incorporated one of the city’s highest green roofs, recreating an ecological habitat 34 floors above street level.
