I was there yesterday and at Joiner Street you're basically walking along the side of one wall of the Shard.
As before, I spoke to a man coming out of the Shard and he sat and we had a chat. He works on the firedoors! He also works on the firedoors within the gold Queen's Gold carriage coach and also within the Guildhall. Quite an expert then. He also said he really loved this job. Happy workers!

So I've talked with scaffolders, fire door workers, I would love to talk with a project manager - I wonder how many of those there are.

Immediately next to the Shard and part of the complex is what looks like another building. But as al four sides of the Shard are now being glazed, I could not work out what this other building is. Car park maybe? Very very very tall building in its own right and within the same compound.

I think The Shard looks pretty cool indeed - though I can't help thinking that it will be a bombers paradise...next to a main London tube/bus/train station AND a hospital..

The Eiffel Tower will still be a few ft taller than the Shard

Is it true that no buildings will be built in London higher than the Shard due to building restrictions and safety?

Is that so? I'd never have guessed.

I like the building, I think it will look really good.

The Pinnacle (AKA Helter-Skelter) on Bishopsgate is going to look even better.

It looks like a naked Dalek to me. So to lighten up it's look, I suggest a giant Sombrero.

Or a deerstalker perched jauntily on the top

Wadda-you-think?

My OH was watching the construction through binocs recently when he saw one of the workers working on the top section slip, fall and dangle in mid-air from his safety harness until his co-workers hauled him back up.

The photos above are absolutely wonderful, specially the close up of the guys putting the very top bits on, the shardy bits, on top!

Thanks so much for sharing.

We can see all this from our flats, but not the detail even through the binoculars. However, having seen Venus's four moons the other night with the telescope, we should try with that, even if the image will be upside down!

Not the best quality as I took it with my phone but have a look half way up the tower - a row of fellah's slowly abseiling down the building... Scary stuff.

Saw them yesterday Ruffers as my office is on Bermondsey street. Stood and watched a while amazed at having that as a job. I get vertigo cleaning windows on a bungalow. Think they may have been removing the covering protecting the glass.
