Canary Wharf: Construction Working Practices

The Canary Wharf project comprises the construction of 12.5 M ft2 of office and retail space in 24 buildings. The buildings are grouped into four neighbourhoods focused around the major public spaces known as Westferry Circus, Founders Court (Cabot Square), Docklands Square (Canada Square), and Blackwall Place (Churchill Place). For reference during construction, the buildings are known by a number and a prefix related to the above grouping, e.g. the building known as FC2 is building 2 in the Founders Court (Cabot Square) neighbourhood. Phase 1 of the project, comprising approximately 4.5 M ft2 net of office and retail facilities and the supporting infrastructure, is divided into 10 fairly distinct building parcels, as follows: 1: Westferry Circus and West India Place 2: infrastructure comprising roads and watercuts west of Docklands Square (Canada Square), Founders Court (Cabot Square), and Blackwall Place (Churchill Place carparks).
