The Rebuilding of the Stock Exchange: the First Phase

The rebuilding of the Stock Exchange in London presents an interesting problem in design and in construction. The need was to produce a building of the highest possible standard architecturally which would not only satisfy the complex requirements of the Stock Exchange as a market but which would also be compatible with the contemporary City scene. At the same time the work had to be carried out without disrupting the operation of the Stock Exchange, and without risking damage to the Central Line tubes which run close alongside the site. This paper describes the first stage of the rebuilding and in particular the special construction of the foundations and also the loadbearing precast concrete exterior of the 27-storey-high tower which determines its architectural character. Peter Dunican and John Martin
