111 Cannon Street, London, EC4N 5AR

Bennett Construction recently commenced on site at 11 Cannon Street in London. The development consists of an 8 storey office block with a retail unit on the ground floor facing Cannon Street including Cat A fit out of new office areas & associated toilets, reception & common parts.

The structure consists mainly of a structural steel frame with the central stair and lift core in reinforced concrete.   The façade consists of a mixture of Portland stone, glazed curtain walling and zinc cladding.

Formerly the site of St Swithin’s Church, 111 Cannon Street is also the resting place of the London Stone since 1798 when it was built into the south wall of the Church.  In 1940 the church was badly damaged by a bombing in the second world war but the stone remained undamaged.  The stone was then incorporated in to a wall of the 1962 building. 

The London Stone has temporarily been moved to the London Museum where it is on display, whilst construction takes place. It has been incorporated in the new buildings design and will be reinstated before completion.
