The modern landscape of England’s capital city has some of the most iconic structures in the worlds of business and tourism, and there is still an appetite to always have the next big idea on the drawing board. Because of this, there has never been a better time to work in construction in London.

Growing levels of business activity require bigger and better state-of-the-art premises, and this has led to the development of The Shard, 20 Fenchurch - aka the 'Walkie-Talkie' and the Leadenhall Building, which is known as the Cheese Grater, which all have their own unique design that makes them truly stand out in London’s skyline.

If you think that these are impressive, you may also be interested to know that there are currently more than 200 proposed developments in the pipeline that have more than 20 storeys. More developments mean that roles in construction in London will continue to show strong levels of demand.
