Investigation after bolts fall off the Leadenhall Building

Posted on by

AN INVESTIGATION has been launched after it was revealed that two bolts have falled off the Leadenhall Building in the City of London.

One of the two bolts which became dislodged fell to the ground while another fell inside the building.

A statement from British Land, who are joint developers on the project with Oxford Properties, says that the structural integrity of the building is not affected and that the “design of the structure allows for isolated events of this type.”

An area around the base of the building at 122 Leadenhall Street has been cordoned off while a full investigation is conducted by contractor Laing O’Rourke and structural engineers Arup.

The under-construction skyscraper, known as the Cheesegrater because of its distinctive angled shape, is 224 metres tall and has pre-let space to tenants such as AON and Amlin plc.
