Demolition contract awarded on second Heron skyscraper

Keltbray has been awarded the demolition job on the second Heron skyscraper in the City of London.

The win sets in motion the £500m Heron Plaza project, which will stand opposite the recently opened Heron Tower office block. Both schemes are by property developers Heron International.

Keltbray is expected to start demolition on site next month, with a main contractor likely to be appointed in the summer.

The 135-metre high Heron Plaza tower will house a Four Seasons hotel and luxury apartments.
