Angel Court shortlisted for RIBA London Award
We are delighted that Angel Court has been shortlisted for the RIBA London Award.
The Award recognises successful projects that reflect changes and innovations in architecture, with emphasis on the commitment to designing and developing buildings and spaces to improve and enhance people’s lives.
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.
All shortlisted buildings will now be assessed by a regional jury with the winning buildings announced at the Awards ceremony on 15th May 2018.
Regional winners will be considered for a RIBA National Award in recognition of architectural excellence which will be announced in June.
Congratulations to all those involved in this great project!
Angel Court is currently in the running for ‘Best Tall Building Europe’ by The Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, followed by being shortlisted for ‘Best Commercial Workplace’ in the BCO London Award.
