Glaxo Smithkline is one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical businesses with its headquarters located in west London. At about one million square feet, this development was completed 30 months ahead of schedule, saving £60m and set new standards for construction delivery, safety and innovation. Over 14,000 cubic metres of concrete containing Everdure Caltite was used to waterproof various areas of the basement structure adjacent to the Grand Union Canal. The basement is completely membrane-free!
