Project Description

Standing at almost 310 metres, The Shard is one of the tallest buildings in Western Europe. The viewing platform at the Shard is a `must-visit` for Londoners and indeed tourists, offering breath taking views that stretch 40 miles out across London and beyond.

The architect required a support system that delivered perfect levelling for this iconic site, and the obvious choice was the Buzon DPH pedestal system. The end result was a millimetre perfect installation, laid onto falling insulation.

The second criteria was the ability to support high live loads due to the heavy foot traffic, and with the DPH offering in excess of two tons per pedestal…the problem was solved.

Buzon UK were honoured to work on The Shard project delivering world class product to help create one of London’s most iconic buildings.


Buzon UK has been a key partner to Domus for many years. Mike and his team have always been very supportive, offering us the most modern and technically proficient pedestal systems available. Their expertise in sub-floor systems and installation allows us to support our Architectural and Contractor partners to the very best of our ability.


I have known Mike personally and his professional team of installers at Buzon UK for over 12 years.  They make light work of problems and are a solution driven firm who I trust implicitly to deliver the quality my clients expect.  I would recommend Mike and his team at Buzon UK, as I regularly do, in a heartbeat.
