Paintwork specialist Lucas wins Shard job

Specialist painting contractor S. Lucas has been awarded the shell and core decorations package for the Shard of Glass tower in London.

The £1m contract with construction manager Mace will see the specialist paint all basement and core back-of-house areas on the 310 meter-tall tower being built at London Bridge.

This includes all corridors, perimeter walls and columns, staircases and lift lobbies as well as base painting for certain public areas.

Specialist epoxy floor coatings will be applied to seal and waterproof concrete surfaces, protecting them from corrosive liquids and making them cleanable and dustproof.

Lucas will make full use of its dedicated logistics centre to sequence supplies on a just in time basis to suit the construction programme of the Shard.

The painting firm has built up a formidable track record at London’s signature high rise buildings such as the Willis Building, Ropemaker and Broadgate Tower.

Have there been any announcements as to the practices that will be carrying out the interior design work for The Shard?

This is going to be a beauty once complete!

This is definitely going to be the sharpest looking tower in London.

The size is completely overwhelming compared to the surroundings.

I went to see it up close today and I have to say overall im a little disappointed.

The height is great, but the floor area is so small at the top. This building could have been so much more imposing if it were a rectangle.

Something like this would have been better. Its got alot more clout to it even though the height is similar.

not sure I agree. One is a triangle one is a rectangle? Id say they were both pretty boring?

The cladding on the shard and its design doesnt really do it for me. Its tall, and its great for the town, but as a building I prefer the Gherkin and the Pinnacle.
