Careys Civil Engineering has extensive concrete frame experience having successfully completed some of the UK's most challenging superstructure projects. From high-rise buildings in the centre of London to our extensive portfolio of slipform and jumpformed structures, our teams ensure exceptional standards of safety and quality on all our projects.
At Careys Civil Engineering, we are known for building superstructures of the highest quality. In order to achieve the excellent standards, we demand of ourselves and promise to our clients, we use the latest construction techniques and employ robust health and safety protocols on all our projects.
At 22 Bishopsgate, we used a self-erecting jumpform system - the first of its kind to be used in the UK - to construct the two concrete cores. 22 Bishopsgate is a mixed-use development in London’s Financial District, which is the second tallest building in London at 278m tall, comprising 62 storeys, and with a floor space of 1.4 million feet. Overall the project required the pouring of 58,000m3 of concrete and the use of 7,500t of reinforcement, highlighting our expertise in the construction of complex high rise concrete structures.
From high rise buildings, set in the midst of busy, fast-paced cities, to sustainable energy from waste (EfW) facilities, located in more rural parts of the country – we’re proud to have delivered an impressive portfolio of superstructures over the past 50 years that we have been in business.
Recognised throughout the construction industry for our close attention to detail, we have successfully delivered an array of exceptional superstructures across the UK, including:
- 22 Bishopsgate, London
- Principal Tower, London
- Millerhill Energy from Waste plant, Dalkeith
- The V&A museum, Dundee
