It needs to be done at the proper time. Requires patience.

Flškt Woods will supply the ventilation requirements for the Shard

Flškt Woods has won a contract to supply the ventilation requirements for Londonís new prestigious landmark building, The Shard, which is currently under construction, next to London Bridge Station in Southwark.

Once completed in 2012, at 310m in height, it will become Western Europeís tallest habitable building with 72 occupiable floors, equivalent to 95 floors in total. Mace, the international consultancy and construction company is the principal contractor for The Shard, which is being developed by Sellar, have charged HVAC specialists Gardner & Co with the challenge of meeting the unique ventilation requirements of the building. Working together with Flškt Woods, the project brief outlined a range of specialist venting JM fans, providing emergency smoke ventilation as well as some smaller general extract fans

Following on from the new fabrication processes pioneered by Mace, a prefabrication strategy was implemented to minimize both site installation & the amount of materials on site. Flakt Woods and Gardner & Co design teams worked together to design a range of fire rated enclosures which were skid mounted & pre-fabricated at the Companyís Colchester Works using the market leading Flameshield range of fire rated ductwork.

The project specific fan assemblies are designed to operate both as general extract, and if required, emergency smoke extract preventing fire smoke from entering escape routes.

property website 'Homes & Property' is claiming they believe one or two of the high luxury apartments situated near the top of the building could fetch around £36 million!!!
The website writes:

The Shard has 78 storeys and will comprise a five-star Shangri-La Hotel with spa, 27 floors of offices, three floors of restaurants, a public viewing gallery and prestige apartments on floors 53 to 65.

When launched later this year, the sky-high homes are expected to reach similarly towering prices — almost certainly well in excess of £4,000 per square foot.

With more than 6,000sq ft of double-height internal space on average, each will be several times bigger than a typical semi-detached house.

Two of the apartments span entire floors, three are duplexes and seven are "simplexes" (a new-fangled name for huge lateral flats).

The homes will each have their own lift from street level and feature enclosed winter gardens. Prices for some of the flats could top £36 million.

Its a great building and addition to London but it is by no means a "WOW" imho.

This is bullshit!

The Shard's best apartments will go for less than GBP 3.000/sq. ft, not even close the GBP 4.000/sq. ft.

I would pay something near GBP 2.500/sq. ft, nothing more.
