BMSI team up with Mace to tackle ‘The Can of Ham’

BMSI is delighted to be working with Mace on the iconic 70 St Mary’s Axe building, commonly known as ‘The Can of Ham.’

The building comprises 24 floors and includes flexible, modern office space – organised around a central core – with retail outlets and accommodation being found at the ground level of the building. This project is one of many large-scale iconic office buildings in the City of London that BMSI have been involved in in recent times, a trend that looks set to continue for the year ahead as additional high-profile contracts roll in throughout 2018.

BMSI Design Engineer, Ian Tatton, who is working on the project, commented: “This is the perfect venture for BMSI to be involved in and marks the start of a very busy 18 months ahead for the team. The distinctive ‘can’ shape of 70 St Mary’s Axe has been developed with low energy measures in mind, such as borehole thermal energy storage and energy piles, that result in a design with very low carbon emissions. This innovative energy-saving design makes this a particularly interesting undertaking for BMSI and one that we’re very proud to be involved in – and by working alongside Mace, we’re confident of delivering on yet another high-profile contract in 2018 and beyond.”
