5 Canary Wharf


Client: Canary Wharf Group

Architect: Skidmore Owings & Merrill

Main Contractor: Canary Wharf Group

Scope: 3 coat full external corrosion protection system

Package Value: £270,000

Working direct for the steelwork fabricator, IPCL undertook the surface preparation and application of a multi coat corrosion system on this iconic roof structure. In addition to the high decorative finish required all bolted connection interfaces were required to be coated to ensure a complete weather seal in the paint system.


Being fully exposed to the elements meant that encapsulation and heating were required in order to maintain conditions favourable for the application of the coatings. This together with specialist fixed scaffold and abseil access were utilised in order to complete our works package.
