From Workstream Pulse, Summer 2014

The £350 million Leadenhall Building, popularly known as the "Cheesegrater", is now one of the most prominent features on the skyline of London's square mile. Main contractor Laing O'Rourke began work on the distinctively-shaped, 47-storey office tower in September 2011 and practical completion of its shell and core is scheduled for this summer. The building offers a gross internal area of 930,000 square feet with 18,000 tonnes of structural steeland 70,000 square metres of cladding.

Curtain walling contractor Yuanda chose Workstream to deliver the entire logistics package. With responsibility for delivering all site materials to the relevant floors, Workstream had 67 operatives working on site at the project's peak. Due to the nature of the work many of the operatives needed to be Leading Edge and Manual Handling trained, something that we organised as and when required.
