“Tall Buildings” expertise for the Lord Mayor’s Appeal

Steve Watts, Partner at alinea consulting and Chairman of the Council on Tall Buildings & Urban Habitat, yesterday joined a group of 30 people in total, to abseil down 22 Bishopsgate to raise vital funds for The Lord Mayor’s Appeal. This year’s beneficiaries are charities: Place2Be, OnSide Youth Sides and Samaritans, with the endeavour set to raise £150,000. Watts, who half-jokingly says that he is not good with heights, apparently enjoyed the experience, despite the initial shock of looking down from Level 35 at over 150m up and wondering what he was doing there.
