Kamran Moazami, WSP Cantor Seinuk, showed the structural engineering design approach used to create the iconic tower named the ‘Shard at London Bridge’ (Architect: Renzo Piano Building Workshop). At a height of 1016 feet (310 metres), it will become the tallest building in Europe. From the early stages of the design and conception, the intention was to maintain the architectural inspiration and use state of the art structural engineering tools and techniques to engineer a building that optimizes every aspect of its structure from the foundation system, to the gravity supporting and lateral bracing systems.
