City of London tightens rules on skyscrapers over wind tunnel fears

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/...ist-pedetrians

Quote:
Tougher building rules for skyscrapers have been drawn up by the City of London because of concerns that a high-rise, urban microclimate will generate winds capable of knocking over cyclists and pedestrians.

Developers will have to provide more comprehensive safety assessments of how proposed buildings will affect people on street level, with more robust testing of roadways and pavements using detailed scale models in wind tunnels and computer simulations.

Reports of fierce downdraughts came soon after construction of the 39-storey Walkie-Talkie was completed in 2014. The building’s shape resulted in the sun’s rays being reflected on to streets in such an intense beam that journalists were able to fry an egg in the heat.

Structure Tone lands 60m office revamp for ad giant WPP

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...-ad-giant-wpp/

Quote:
Advertising giant WPP has awarded Structure Tone a 60m contract to refurbish its new campus building at Rose Court in south London. The building has not been significantly upgraded since 1989 and is badly in need of modernisation.

Structure Tone will undertake extensive refurbishment works which include removing the existing cladding and installing new glazed faade with decorative finials.The firm will also create additional floor space to provide a distinctive new appearance of the building along Southwark Bridge Road.

To the rear of the building, a new nine-storey extension will provide WPP employees with cycle storage on the lower levels and additional meeting rooms and workspaces above.

London builds tall, that's new for European History. Though London is still capital of bad taste as well... that's good to see some things never change!
