I'm pretty sure this steel will be visible when the building is complete. So they went the extra mile and added fresh paint I believe.

I haven't been here for several months, and wow. Just a year ago I wouldn't have imagined that the Leadenhall Building would be taking shape before The Pinnacle, funny how things go sometimes.

Cheesegrater Reaches Passes First Stage
Published on 01-05-2012 by Skyscrapernews.com



Construction is progressing on the Leadenhall Building, more popularly known as the Cheesegrater, with the first stage of the tower now starting to be fleshed out above ground making the shape of tower finally apparent to all.

Lead by main contractor Laing O'Rourke, the concrete floor slab the tower will sit on should now be complete with the steelwork and floor decking up the fifth floor. The northern service core that will provide the lift shafts has risen to the same height. This section can be identified by the use of yellow steel. The next step will be to start construction above this level, something that has already begun in the case of the white steel of the central core.

One notable part of the construction process involves some of the most impressive transporting of recent years. The stair cores of the tower will have 48 metre long steel girders and these are to be transported to the site in one piece. Putting this into perspective, 48 metres is the same height as Swansea's civic centre clock tower.

They will be transported by Hindle's, the firm who recently moved the large parts of the Olympic Cable Car down the River Thames and are experienced in moving large loads to building sites through the capital. Hindle's will be doing this by utilising abnormal low-loaders, and they will of course have a traffic escort to reach the site. The date of this will depend on weather conditions.

Once completed in 2014 the Leadenhall Building will be 224.5 metres tall and the main London headquarters for Aon, the insurance company. In the meantime architecture aficionados will have a new landmark building to watch rise now the Shard approaches completion.
