Szerelmey were engaged to undertake the external cladding of this mixed commercial and retail city development at 1 Old Jewry using a combination of Portland stone and French Anstrude limestone over three elevations. The design incorporates composite stone on precast panels together with hand set masonry. The elevations above the first floor are dominated by stone clad precast columns fixed back to the frame at the different floor levels. The ground floor area features stone sarcophagi also installed by Szerelmey. Each corner of the main elevation features load-bearing shear walls in hand-set masonry fixed to concrete backing panels.
