70 St. Mary Axe Marketing Suite

Client – Nuveen

Main Contractor – Mace

Value - £450K

Lucas has successfully completed the construction and fitting out of a new marketing suite at 70 St Mary Axe, also known as “The can of ham” for its multi scale design.

The Lucas fit out team in collaboration with Mace M & E installed all joinery and built a kitchen, meeting room and display areas in an open-plan design, creating attractive, contemporary spaces with glass dividing walls.

The team installed a giant illuminated “70” suspended from the ceiling and created a display library to house brochures and other materials for visitors and potential tenants of the 21 storey office tower in the heart of the City of London.

Teams from Lucas also carried out several other packages for the development including fit out works to showers, toilets and changing rooms in the basement of the building as well as a “shell and core” programme of specialist protective coatings and dust sealants, and a painting programme throughout the building’s lifts, lobbies and back of house areas.

The new building is within a cluster of tall City buildings, each with its own distinctive shape and silhouette. 70 St Mary Axe has an elegant curving profile with eye-catching exterior fins, and provides some 300,000 sq ft of office space.

The impressive new marketing suite is the latest created and built by Lucas which has developed a strong reputation for similar projects for clients and major developments across central London.
