88 Wood Street, London 2007

The newly refurbished 88 Wood Street, situated close to London’s Barbican, offers premium work spaces and up to 6,000 sq ft of E Class retail and leisure space over the ground floor. Designed by Sir Richard Rogers, the property benefits from excellent transport links with Moorgate, St Paul’s, Bank and Barbican within a 10 minute walk.

The area is home to renowned restaurants with the likes of The Ivy, Coq d’Argent and The Ned as well as a host of cafes, bars, gyms and exciting leisure opportunities. Updates to the existing architecture only serve to complement and enhance the original form and function of this iconic building.

A series of Macalloy architectural products were used for the construction of this high rise building. From Macalloy tension bars / tie rods to architectural adjustable compression struts. Macalloy tension bars were used throughout this iconic London office complex, consisting of three high rise towers. The tie bars were used in a cross bracing application to provide structural support to the steel structure.

In addition Macalloy’s architectural adjustable compression struts were used for bracing at ground level where potential compressive forces were to be encountered.

The tension bars were stressed on site by Macalloy’s own site services team using Macalloys tie bar tensioning device, the TechnoTensioner, which allows for simple tensioning of tie rods.
