​London is the capital of England and is the most populous city in the United Kingdom. London stands on the River Thames and is governed by the Mayor of London and London Assembly. It was estimated in 2015 that the population was over 8,500,000.  London is a leading global city in arts, finance, professional services and construction and over the past decade has seen some of the largest construction projects in the world, such as:

The Shard

This landmark tower was the first in the UK to break the 1000 ft barrier. At nearly twice the size of the Gherkin, the Shard is one of the tallest buildings in Europe. The cost of the project was in excess of £1.2bn, which also included major refurbishment of the the train and bus station. 

The Leadenhall Building

Also known as the cheesegrater, this 48 floor tower cost in the region of £286m to build. It features a 90 ft high atrium, glass lifts and despite the height of the building only offers 500,000 sq ft of floorspace due to its unusual profile. 

20 Fenchurch Street

Also known as the Walkie Talkie, this 36 floor tower offers a sky garden set over floors 35, 36 and 37, which offers uninterrupted views across London. The tower cost £200m and is distinctively top heavy.


Work on the Crossrail began in 2009 and was confirmed in 2014 that the £14.8bn project would extend to Reading. The project is set to be complete in 2019.
