Irvine sellar was Compton history Month of building iconic Tower at London Bridge it was seen as an area ready for regeneration it sits on top of alongside one of the biggest Transit thermostat in London Government white paper in merged with said they would encourage high density development providing properties will close to transport House well the building we both sat right next to and party on top of London Bridge station the idea of having a multi-use bill give me other time if you're going to build big then we should have a mix of uses I thought what we need for the future and stereotypes is that the engineer is worried about numbers and the Architects worry about the colour and Ball the Builder cares about his building it quickly on the show it wasn't like that and the architect did listen when we talk to him about our concerns about the structure and we listen to him with his concerns about Aesthetics and the contractor was open to discussions about how we could maybe bill things slightly differently by looking at deformed geometry at the type of the uses of the building we seek the best possible engineering a structural solution but client had this ambition of 900000 square feet having said I was competent is dreaming of building an iconic town people seen as an area ready for regeneration it sits on top of alongside one of the biggest Transit Terminus in London Government white paper in merged with said they would encourage high density development providing properties will close to transport House well the building we bought sat right next to and party on top of London Bridge station the idea of a multi use building show me of the time in for going to build big then we should have a mix of users I thought what we should be doing that with the people that should be engineering that we are the best so I made an appointment and it was convincing apart but they can trust you on what is the treatment I think it was a bit about belief in the building because I remember people sing to me it will never be billed there whatever can build it once he has established an architect in Renzo Piano it then spend a long time convincing the establishment that this was a great idea for London we had all the odds work it against us the Planet of the public enquiry there was complete disbelief this would ever happen so with the sort of a fair amount of aggressive charm depression probably more than charming we worked our way through it obviously it had to be engineered in a way that made every possible need for the future be kind of stereotype the engineer is worried about numbers and the Architects worried about the colour and all the Builder cares about building it quickly on The Shard it wasn't like that the architect did listen when we talk to him about our concerns about the structure and we listen to him with his concerns about Aesthetics and the contractor was open to discussions about how we could maybe bill things slightly differently by looking at deformed geometry and the type of the uses of the building we seek the best possible engineering a structural solution but client had this ambition of 900000 square feet it's been good to see the positive effect that the shard as hand on the London Bridge area that he'll likely have given something to the community we spent over 62 million in public realm including the new bus station new station Concourse was the nucleus of the real ambition which still continues to create a new folder and new District for London it's a beautiful story tells you it if you really want to do it you could do it but it needs everybody to work today and then it's got global recognition it has won more awards and I think any other building the Sharp Project gave us the opportunity to demonstrate that we're on world class engineer pride that we have in a competition back design and that eventually output is enormous
