Angel Court finalist for ‘Best Tall Building Europe’ at CTBUH Award
We are delighted that Angel Court is a finalist in the ‘Best Tall Building Europe’ category at The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) Awards.
The CTBUH Awards recognise projects and individuals that have made extraordinary contributions to the advancement of tall buildings and the urban environment, and that achieve sustainability at the highest and broadest level. This year, developers and design teams representing 45 projects from around the world will compete for honours across eight categories, with the winners of each regional category contending for the title of 2018 Best Tall Building Worldwide.
The newly completed Angel Court, designed by Fletcher Priest Architects, is a 1970’s tower that has been through a major redevelopment, replacing all but its core, transforming it into a landmark 300,000 sq ft prime office building in the heart of London’s financial district next to the Bank of England. The 25-storey scheme provides high quality office space with floorplates up to 27,000 sq ft, five terraces and uninterrupted 360-degree views of London’s skyline.
Waterman was appointed as the multidiscipline engineer to provide structures, MEP, fire, civil and environmental consultancy services. Our team worked closely with Mitsui Fudosan UK (‘Mitsui Fudosan’) and development partner Stanhope Plc to deliver the scheme.
The project’s success is testament to the collaborative approach of the whole team led by Fletcher Priest Architects. The sustainable and innovative design solutions have made this an exemplary project, one of the first London City commercial offices to secure a BREEAM 2014 Excellent Design Stage Assessment as well as an EPC A rating. The construction carbon footprint was significantly reduced through innovative design solutions that enabled retention of the original core and re-use of original foundations and basement structure.
The winners will be announced at the Tall and Urban Innovation Conference on 30th-31st May in Chicago.
Congratulations to all those involved in this exciting project!
