Mace uses Powerproject Enterprise for Construction at the Shard

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 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.

“ 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. ”
