THE TALLEST TOWER: BUILDING THE SHARD This is the story of The Shard - the colossal glass skyscraper that has transformed Londons skyline... Built against a backdrop of massive public opposition and one of the worst recessions in history, this feat of architectural engineering in the heart of the capital stands at over 1000 feet and is the tallest tower in Western Europe. The Shard is one of Londons most dominant landmarks and this lifts the lid on the challenges and achievements of an enormous engineering project in a densely populated area of London. The demanding construction schedule required builders to add a new floor every seven days, and has used 100,000 tonnes of concrete, 11,468 glass panels, a spire made of 500 tonnes of steel and the UKs tallest crane. Its construction is the dream of property developer Irvine Sellar, a former fashion-store owner who appointed world-renowned architect Renzo Piano, who s previous work includes the world famous Paris Pompidou Centre and the New York Times Building. Filmed over four years, The Tallest Tower: Building the Shard provides exclusive behind-the-scenes access to this architectural journey, and the story of one man s desire to leave a lasting mark on the capital.
