Heron Tower is located at the heart of London’s financial district in Canary Warf. The commercial skyscraper stands at 755 feet making it the tallest building in London’s financial district. Kohn Pedresen Fox Associates designed the building and construction of the 46 storey building began in 2007.
A 92-foot stainless steel mass sits on top of the tower. The mast was fabricated over a six-month period in Radley Engineering’s workshop in Waterford in 2010. The mast is fabricated from 2205 Duplex Material and is anchored twenty metres inside the main structure of the tower using fiscous dampers and heavy duty springs.
The tower was transported from Radley Engineering’s workshop in Waterford to London and was added to the building in July 2010.
