Minster Court London EC3

Northern Escalator Installations Limited completed a major project to remove sixteen escalators supported from high tension steel rods from the prestigious office development at Minster Court London EC3, on behalf of 777 Demolition Ltd.

The removal project included a range of specialty services undertaken by NEI, from feasibility and site surveys, to advising the customer prior to any works being carried out, consulting with builders and architects, producing detailed RAMS, supplying transportation and cranage for the escalators being removed, through to gaining authority for road closure and arranging traffic management where necessary. A dedicated Project Manager was appointed at the beginning of the work to be our customer’s point of contact, throughout the whole of the removal operation. The removal of the escalators took approximately four weeks from the start of the project to completion. Minster Court is built on the site of what was an ancient convent around 1,000 years ago, which is the source of inspiration for much of the Post-Modern Gothic architectural building design. Minster Court was the headquarters of the London Underwriting Centre, one of the main hubs of the financial services industry in London. At its peak the building handled 3500-4000 brokers a day. The full completion of the Minster Court refurbishment will see this iconic building transformed into modern open plan office space.
