The paper describes the structural design of the new building from inception through to the analyses carried out during the construction period. Particular emphasis is placed on the extensive wind tunnel testing and dynamic analysis and the studies developed from them. The use made of prototype testing of principal structural elements is explained, together with the detailed studies of movements both in the ground due to excavation and in the superstructure during and after construction. The paper is structured into the following sections: G.J. Zunz, M.J. Glover and A.J. Fitzpatrick
