    The Shard - Case Study

    Designed by the award-winning architect Renzo Piano, the Shard is now one of the most iconic buildings that dominates Londons skyline. Developed by Irvine Sellar, his aim was to create an architecturally striking vertical city that incorporated retail space, offices, hotel, apartments, restaurants and a public viewing gallery.

    Resembling a shard of glass, the project is approximately 306 metres (1,004 ft) high and is currently the tallest building in the European Union. The View at the shard, on floors 68 - 72 is currently the UKs highest public viewing galleries, standing at 240m above street level.

    A prestigious and iconic London building, the Shard required an aesthetically pleasing and durable ironmongery solution. Allgood Plc supplied a combined ironmongery and access control package that included; automatic door operators, electronic locks, door furniture and hardware. Allgood supplied a variety of product ranges (Modric, FSB and Alite) to accommodate the mixed used development project, as each floor required a different ironmongery package.

    The whole package provided by Allgood Plc was delivered on time and within the clients budget to the following areas of the Shard:
