Integral Cradles is assisting with the final clean of 52 Lime Street in London – nicknamed “The Scalpel” – before handing over to the client.
The Scalpel is 190 metres tall, offers 35 levels of office space, over 500,000 square feet of commercial space and over 12,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. Integral Cradles designed and installed two building maintenance units (BMUs)at the new structure – two of the world’s largest, in fact. Their specialists also created a series of intricate moving roofs in which to house the BMUs.
Integral Cradles was hired for its specialist services at The Scalpel through first-tier contractor Skanska. The two organisations have enjoyed a successful collaborative relationship over a number of years.
The Scalpel takes its place in the city alongside The Gherkin and The Cheesegrater, contributing to one of the most recognised skylines in the world. Both of these buildings also benefit from access solutions designed and installed by Integral Cradles.
