Hiscox has won a further injunction against developers working on a site adjacent to its offices
Hiscox has won a further injunction against developers working on the site of what will be the City’s tallest skyscraper, but warned staff they can still expect “quite a bit of bang and wobble” from the building works next door.
In a judgment handed down last Friday, demolition contractor Keltbray, working on behalf of developers Arab Investments, was warned not to exceed vibration levels that had been agreed in December last year. But Arab Investments would not be held liable for a breach if it took reasonable steps to prevent vibration levels being exceeded.
Hiscox originally gained an injunction on 5 December last year regarding site access, following complaints from staff that they might be injured by heavy machinery. The injunction was extended to cover both vibration levels and water ingress.
A spokesperson for Arab Investments said: “The Pinnacle has worked within agreed noise and vibration levels.”
