Maceboy is in the first photograph talking to Will (wjfox2002) on the right. He's got his back to the camera and wearing a '51 Lime Street' high-vis vest.

I think the highlight of the tour was the visit to the first men's toilets installed on the 10th floor! As to what that bloke was doing in the crane I don't know.

A few of mine. Once again, a huge thanks to Peter from Mace, and best of luck with the tender for next week. Could be an epic contract and boy, how prestigious!

from the 16th floor roof terrace:




cladding lined up and ready to go:


21st floor looking south towards 20 Fenchurch Street:


21st floor looking east towards the Wharf


and my favourite photo - looking out to the Tate Modern, Bankside 123 and 20 Fenchurch Street (to be replaced by the 'walkie talkie' design by Vinoly. Look at the spiral staircase on the outside of the Lloyds Building 100m up! Awesome - that sight made my day:

Let's have a look at the structure itself:




Even the toilets will be nice :

Last but not least:




It was a superb visit of a very nice building, and I met some cool people! Thanks for the beer, and I hope to see you again for another visit!

A last pic, while going to Bank:

Amazing pics bnmaddict, thank you!

Quite possibly the best shot of SwissRe I've ever seen (the fisheye one)

...Thanks for rubbing it in that I couldn't be there!

Great pics guys. I especially liked the Lloyd's staircase, the panoramic pics and of course the toilets shot!

What kind of camera were you using Charles?

Yes. In the offices we saw renders for an entertainment/viewing area where we were walking about.
