Mace’s tool of choice to deliver their project plan for a vertical city

Powerproject®
The Shard, London

The Shard, an iconic tower on the London skyline, is a ‘vertical city’ with 590,000 square feet of world-class office space, a hotel, restaurants, luxury residences and public viewing galleries. At 310m, the building is now one of the tallest in western Europe.

Mace, as main contractor, saw the complex programme through from conception to completion. To help meet the challenge, Mace required a programme and project management tool that could handle significant technical challenges and that would be flexible yet robust enough to take on such a huge construction project. As well as Mace’s expertise from large-scale global projects they chose Powerproject to help them drive the innovative solutions required.

Mace Director, Rob Owen stated: “Using Powerproject not only made the job of scheduling a much easier process but also meant we could consult more easily with the local council and communicate our plans to all stakeholders. It has a powerful “what-if” functionality which allows us to be innovative and overcome technical challenges, even when a technique has not been used before. Everything can be risk assessed.”
