Workers studying electrical courses may be happy to hear that two skyscraper projects in London that had been put on hold are now set to go ahead.

The two buildings - dubbed the Cheesegrater and the Walkie Talkie thanks to their shapes - are 47 and 37 storeys high respectively and are due to be completed by 2014 after developers British Land and Land Securities found funding partners.

With such large projects, there is sure to be a need for technicians who have completed electrical courses.

Both initiatives received the green light in the space of a week, having been suspended in 2008 as a result of the economic downturn.

British Land will develop the Cheesegrater with the help of Canadian organisation Oxford Properties, while Land Securities has teamed up with Canary Wharf Group.

Chief executive of British Land Chris Grigg stated that he is delighted to have secured a deal to develop the new skyscraper, which he described as boasting "iconic architecture".
