Client: W.R. Berkley
The Scalpel is a commercial skyscraper in the City of London and the European headquarters of insurance company W.R. Berkley. It will be the company’s European headquarters. Originally a nickname, the “Scalpel” was coined by the Financial Times as the official name due to the building’s unique, angular shape and following a trend for naming new buildings in the city based on their shape.
Other examples are the Leadenhall Building, also known as “The Cheesegrater” and 30 St Mary’s Axe, also known as “The Gherkin”. Integral Cradles, PTSG’s London-based cradles installation specialist, which provides permanent façade access equipment for a wide range of significant buildings, has provided bespoke access solutions for these iconic buildings and more.
