Our expert team provided cost management, value/risk management, tax advice and specification consultancy services on The Shard at London Bridge, the tallest building in Western Europe.

Designed by renowned architect Renzo Piano, The Shard is a 1,016 feet / 310 meter mixed-use high-rise tower, or more accurately a “vertical city.” Appointed just days before it was called in for a Public Inquiry in 2002, our cost management team assisted the client and its designers from the beginning of the project to its completion, helping to ensure a commercially successful scheme without compromising its architectural and engineering credentials.

The team worked closely with the architect on what at the time was his first and only project in the United Kingdom, quickly gaining his trust and appreciation. The Shard will shortly be joined by The Place (a 430,500-square-feet office development), another Renzo Piano-designed AECOM project, which will sit across a new public piazza and bus station, helping to form the London Bridge Quarter.
