Nido Project

City of London

Nido is a new mixed use development rising more than 100 metres above the northern fringes of the City near Spitalfield. The scheme comprises three elements: a 34-storey central tower; office space over six floors around an external courtyard and a five-storey eastern wing built around a central atrium. With the exception of the steel frame for the office element, it is a concrete frame building.

Byrne Bros. was awarded a £24 million concrete frame contract by ISG in October 2007

Using slip form techniques has enabled the construction of a 34-storey central core to be achieved more than two months ahead of schedule.

The project demonstrates new DFMA (design for manufacture and assembly) and a component based approach can improve on-site productivity. The project team combined this with the use of innovative technology that maximises the use of technology and off-site manufacture, to deliver a high quality project.
