The Pinnacle

Kilnbridge successfully completed the largest drilling and sawing contract ever undertaken in the UK at the Pinnacle, 38 Bishopsgate. This formed an integral part of the overall demolition and piling contracts.

The piles installed on the Pinnacle are the largest ever placed in the UK at 65m deep. The stalled £1billion development would have been the tallest building in the UK at 63 storey’s high (288m).
