Quote:
Building services specialist T Clarke has finally agreed a revised contract sum for developer Brookfield’s 40-storey 100 Bishopsgate Tower in the City of London.

The specialist revealed the deal on the vast electrical package this morning for the 900,000 sq ft building, which is to be built by main contractor Brookfield Multiplex.

T Clarke has started to mobilise its design teams with onsite activities scheduled to start in April 2016.

Quote:
The world’s largest office developer, Brookfield, has given London a £1 billion vote of confidence, pushing the button on construction of the City’s biggest skyscraper without tenants in place.

Subsidiary Brookfield Multiplex will immediately begin work on the 613-foot superstructure of 100 Bishopsgate, investing hundreds of millions. The 900,000-square-foot tower will complete in late 2018.

I'm a bit confused by these two links from user Storeys - the first says it's "scheduled to start in April 2016', the second link says "will immediately begin work". Hopefully the second one is the correct one. Any ideas what's going to happen? I walk past this site every day to work, so would be nice to see something start to grow here.

Building has commenced and it should be complete by 2018. I believe that the 2016 work is regarding the start of electrical work.

Fantastic news!
In addition, I wish to be providing a regular diagram progress update sometime soon*:

100 Bishopsgate
by The Shard Baby 8, on Flickr

*After my exams (post 9th June)! Also I wish to redevelop this diagram, as my style was a lot more different 2.5 years ago than it is now.

Forgive my ignorance. I don't keep on top of the projects as much as I should do... I thought Heron Plaza is dead in the water, no?

It's on hold, but not dead. Some design modifications went through planning not long ago, mostly re configuring the internal layout. I think we will see activity on site before the year is out.

How far are we away from seeing some sort of core to start forming? I'm not nearly as educated as many on here, but is 3-4 months realistic?

6-8 months may be more realistic, though much depends on the construction approach for the sub-structure and whether the construction of the core is priorised over the construction of the whole basement or vice versa. I would assume the whole basement will be excavated first, retaining walls constructed, core foundations and basement slab poured, then the core will rise.

Old video but gives the gist of it. Top down method, same as Heron so might shoot up quicker than expected.

Video gives a good run-down of construction method. Just doesn't mention time scales at all. I guess it will take about 2 years?

Well you can see from the construction enquirer picture that Storeys posted, the perimeter wall piles have gone in. So we are at that stage in the video. (3:00 - 3:20)

Be good to see this going up with the Scalpel. Been missing the 150m+ constructions in the city.

Don't hold out too much hope of that height. The Standard was probably going off the original Pinnacle height after a quick Google search. Still with the new pinnacle, scalpel and 100 BG the City will at last have a high rise skyline worthy of the title
