‘Over and out’ for Marco specification

uPVC Cable Management Company, Marco, the UK manufacturer of Steel Wire Cable Tray, has supplied its Steel Wire Cable Tray products as part of the development of London’s ground breaking Walkie-Talkie building. No.20 Fenchurch Street is set to become a major London landmark. A 36-storey tower with a unique façade, the scheme will provide over 59,000 sq m of premier office space, with retail outlets at ground level and a stunning public sky garden at the top with a 360-degree panoramic view over the city.

Work is now complete at the site where Canary Wharf Contractor has managed the ambitious construction programme on behalf of a joint venture partnership between Canary Wharf Group and Land Securities.

Simon Kowalski, Key Accounts Manager at Marco commented: “This is a really complex and impressive scheme that stands apart from London’s other skyscraper structures. Whilst the building has a lot of impressive sustainable credentials in terms of maximising energy efficiency, there is still a strong demand for a huge cabling infrastructure.

“Marco’s Steel Wire Cable Tray is able to meet the technical demands of the scheme whilst providing the right aesthetic finish for this ultra-modern and clean environment.”

He added: “We’re seeing Marco products chosen more and more for major schemes such as this with specifiers recognising the technical, practical and aesthetic benefits of our products.”
