Project Details
  • Client

    Land Securities

  • Architect

    Fletcher Priest/Sauerbruch Hutton

The two superb landmark buildings occupy an island site in the City of London, overlooking the Old Bailey, and offer a combined 355,000 ft2 of high quality Category A fit-out office space,

26,000 ft2 of restaurant and retail facilities, two basement levels and double height receptions.

We were appointed to provide full multidiscipline engineering duties, including MEP, structural, fire strategy, vertical transportation, acoustics and environmental services.
The project was designed and coordinated in Revit to BIM Level 2 with a two-way interface with 3D analysis between our building services and structural models.

The combination of the St Paul’s height restrictions coupled with the varying ground floor
levels meant particular care was needed to maximise the developable areas within these limits.
Working closely with Fletcher Priest Architects, we were able to minimise the floor to floor heights for both buildings using shallow floor zones without compromising on building performance or future flexibility. The two buildings have achieved a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating through the incorporation of a CHP unit and thermal buffer storage vessels.
