Suspended escalators JLP01_10_57121

3 Minster Court, Mincing Lane, City of London. Looking up through the central atrium of 3 Minster Court, showing the system of escalators suspended from the roof.
In October 1990, Laing's London division were awarded the contract for the fitting out of the new London Underwriting Centre at No.3 Minster Court. Key parts of the contract included altering steelwork to enable 16 escalators to be suspended in the atrium, creating dining and kitchen areas on the mezzanine level and the installation of raised floors and suspended ceilings. In August 1991, the team faced a huge setback as the site was severely damaged by fire. The flames swept through the central atrium and burst through the roof. A new Laing team was formed to restore the building after the disaster, and work was finally completed in late 1993
