Accommodating an office building spanning 600,000 square feet, a 50-storey tower of luxury residences and 20,000 square foot of retail space, Principal Place is set to become one of the tallest developments in central London.
Working in conjunction with Lindner Facades and Lindner Interiors, Prater is contributing its design, manufacture and installation services to the site, which has been developed by Foster + Partners.
The company has been awarded a contract for work on the commercial area of the development: it is currently on site with Lindner Interiors, with its work due for completion this December.
Prater’s £2 million contract covers a complete roofing package, featuring standing seam roofing, waterproofing and bronze anodised rain-screen cladding. Meanwhile, Lindner Interiors has been contracted to work on the suspended ceilings across the office development.
Lindner Facades will begin working on the complete façade of the residential tower in 2017. The design concept includes curved glazing and balustrades, which it will work to create.
