Construction of the two towers began in autumn 2008 and the concrete frame of the two towers was fully completed by April 2009. At this stage the glazing to the main building was substantially complete except for the basement / ground floor level. Glazing of the two towers commenced by the end of summer 2009 and was completed by the end of 2009.
