    You know, from the subject, I was expecting a rant about how your office building did not allow 56k connections. I really must wake up.

    Shiny workplace

    Yup, good trains as in frequency, don't get me started about time keeping!! and bought a nice house for reasonable money ;)
    I'm an essex lad anyway so know the area.

    To get to the top you have to know someone in the building. If any of you are about I'm sure I can be bribed ;)

    To be hoest now is the best time as it's so crystal clear atm so no haze or smog to obscure views ;)

    The Owner is Swiss Re a huge Reinsurance organisation. But they only occupy about the first 13 floors I think. There are still quite a few floors unfilled although there is quite a bit of work going on at the mo on a few other floors - I hate to think what the rent is but I know they were losing approx £32,000 a day a few months ago in lost rental revenue lol.
    The building also had a few issues, i'e windows falling out. Since I've been there one has fallen from the 24 floor :jawdrop: But think that issue has been fixed!! Basically the whole building ventilates itself so randon windows open according to conditions- think there were issues with the large hinges or something like that. I'm just glad no one was caught out by it.. Learn more here
    @ DaSuperFly

    Shouldn't be a prob but it might be better to get a few up there at the same time. You also need to be smartly dressed don't have to be in a suit but no trainers/jeans T shirts - that sorta thing.

    Anyone else interested i'll see what I can do. Prolly won't be till next year now though as this time of year is busy for me :(

    That's such a nice building and I have to say the bar looks amazing, awesome view, it must be such a priviledge being up there..
