Swiss Centre construction
|Swiss Centre construction site 2009-01-07
Haven't posted a Swiss Centre picture for a while. It finished demolition some months ago, and has now entered the construction phase. There are two large blue cranes on site (you can see the bases of them in frame).
Today's new arrival is the upright grey thing in between them. We're not quite sure what it is. They got it a certain amount of assembled and then seem to have taken it apart again, so presumably they are Doing It Wrong. The truck at the bottom has the remainder of it.
We suspect it may be a concrete pourer - any ideas?
(apologies for the very poor shot, on cameraphone and it is VERY COLD on the roof)
Because the building is now not there any more, and it's winter and some of the trees are out of the way, we've noticed we can see the Natwest Tower and the Gherkin from the top floor. I managed to see quite a few more city towers from the roof but didn't stop to identify them.Tags: photos

Well, yes, it is bang in the middle of central London, and they've already committed to the project: they started to demolish the previous building back in 2007, and haven't really had a good occupancy of it since 2005/2006.
