Otis’ Sky Build lifts, which climb up a building as it is built, are enabling the efficient construction of the 278-metre-tall Twentytwo skyscraper in London’s financial district.
Designed by London-based PLP Architecture and developed by AXA Investment Managers – Real Assets in partnership with Lipton Rogers Developments, the 62-storey tower will be the tallest building in the City of London when it completes in 2019.
The skyscraper will be occupied by 12,000 office workers, who will have access to a fresh food market, gym with London’s first climbing window 125 metres above the ground, business club and bike park. Twentytwo will also have a public viewing gallery.
Two of Otis’ Sky Build lifts were installed at the site at the beginning of construction and have been used throughout the build. They will even remain in the building when it completes.
