Angel Court shortlisted for RICS Award
We are pleased that Angel Court has been shortlisted for ‘Commercial Building of the Year’ at the London RICS Awards.
The Awards, which takes place across seven regions, recognise the most inspirational initiatives and developments and their impact on local communities.
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 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 Awards ceremony will take place on 16th May 2018 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London.
Each regional winner of the RICS Award will go onto compete in the Grand Final for ‘Project of the Year’ 2018 in November.
Congratulations to all those involved in this exciting project!
