Britain’s second-tallest building, the HSBC tower at Canary Wharf in London’s Docklands, is supported by concrete frames made by the Byrne Group. The concrete core supports 48 stories and has 12 lift shafts.
The London company, founded in 1973 by Patsy and Johnny Byrne, was also involved in the construction of the Millennium Dome, Chelsea football club’s new stadium and Wimbledon’s Number One court. With such projects, the firm’s profits have grown 31% a year from £2.7m in 1998 to £6.1m in 2001, when it had 350 staff.
