One Nine Elms project team complete City Tower concrete pour

Last week, our team at the One Nine Elms project in Vauxhall, London, successfully completed the raft pour for the development’s 57-storey City Tower. This pour was the third largest of its kind in London, measuring over 4000m.

We worked closely with our basement subcontractor Careys, who executed the pour over a continuous 27-hour period.

We would also like to thank London Concrete, who supplied us with the concrete required to undertake this feat.

Once completed, the One Nine Elms project will feature Europe’s tallest residential tower, providing 730,000 sq ft of residential apartments, 267,000 sq ft of five-star hotel accommodation and 1,000 sq ft of retail outlets.

Multiplex becomes the first construction company in Canada to commit to the Science Based Targets initiative

Multiplex becomes the first construction company in Canada to commit to the Science Based Targets initiative

Multiplex has submitted a letter committing its Canadian operations to the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). This makes it the first construction company – and tenth company from any sector – in Canada to take this important step towards combatting harmful climate change.

The SBTi encourages companies world-wide to transition to a low-carbon economy by helping them set science-based greenhouse gas emissions targets.

Canada is the third Multiplex region to join the SBTi’s ‘Companies Taking Action’ list. It joins Multiplex’s European and Middle Eastern operations, both of which have already committed their targets and are taking science-based action.

Sky bridge unites north and south towers at London’s DAMAC Tower

Construction of DAMAC Tower, the 50-storey luxury residential development at Nine Elms has reached a significant milestone with the installation of the sky bridge that joins its north and south towers at their 18th and 24th floors.

Dubbed the ‘Jenga Tower’, thanks to its unique overhanging structures and distinctive stepped design, DAMAC Tower is being developed by Nine Elms Property Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of DAMAC International and constructed by Multiplex.

Part of the GLA’s Vauxhall Nine Elms Battersea (VNEB) Opportunity Area Planning Framework, a multi-billion-pound regeneration scheme in partnership with the London Boroughs of Lambeth, Wandsworth, the LDA, TfL and English Heritage, the project will provide 450 new homes in total.

The North Tower features interiors by Versace Home and provides 360 residential units. The apartments will offer winter gardens with panoramic views of the city.
