A solar glare issue drew attention to the building for the wrong reasons, but did nothing to deter lettings, with 200,000 sq ft taken up in the months after the problem materialised.
Our brise soleil solution has gained planning approval and installation will start shortly. It will not interfere with the customer fit-out or occupation. The cost involved has not altered our original estimated total cost of the building.
A skyscraper in the City of London which hit the headlines when its design was blamed for starting fires and damaging cars by reflecting the sun's rays is to get a permanent fix.
Developer Land Security has been given planning permission for a sunshade to be attached to the building to replace a temporary system which was put in place last summer.
