Topping out at Nine Elms Square

R&F is pleased to announce a major construction milestone at Nine Elms Square. In December 2020, the first two buildings at  53 and 35 storeys, reached their tallest point, known as ‘topping out’.

Nine Elms Square will be one of the UK’s most exciting and ambitious residential projects. 

Over 450 jobs have been created since construction began in July 2018, and despite all the challenges arising from Covid-19, on-site work has continued in strict accordance with Government guidelines, and construction remains on schedule.

Multiplex lead the way with virtual work experience

One Nine Elms contractors, Multiplex, hosted their first online work experience week in November, aimed at encouraging 18 to 24-year-olds to take up careers in construction.

The team worked with local colleges and training providers to give construction careers advice and teach employability skills in a virtual classroom. Further training, mentoring and job interviews have since been offered to the group.
