22 Bishopsgate London
We have recently completed the office lighting for 22 Bishopsgate, the tallest tower in the City of London, standing at 278 metres high.
The project is developed and managed by AXA IM – Real Assets on behalf of an international consortium of investors, with Lipton Rogers Developments retained as developer.
This linear recessed luminaire was developed in conjunction with WSP and 22 Bishopsgate’s architects PLP, Brookfield and T.Clarke PLC.
This project was a challenge in terms of all existing cut-outs and apertures had to be replicated so each element of the scheme was bespoke to keep building works to a minimum.
What We Supplied
GLOS is highly efficient with a lumen per watt value of 157, whilst the careful design ensures the fixtures could be installed in a simple manner reducing install time.
The air handling testing was carried out by BSRIA, an independent research consultancy that provides specialist services in construction and building services. The test confirmed an air handling requirement of 45 litres per second through air slot apertures designed for the maximum pressure drop of 5Pa.
Recognising the fact that 99% of City businesses are SMEs, there is an innovation hub for small businesses and start ups on level seven. Levels three and four, meanwhile, will house a new 51,000 sqft events and meeting venue available for use by the hour or day.
As well as providing a place for 12,000 people to work, creating a diverse business community, 22 Bishopsgate also provides a range of retail, bar and restaurant units.
About 22 Bishopsgate Gate
Wellness and its subsequent impact on productivity of workers is a high priority for the design of this office building, as exemplified by 22 Bishopsgate having London’s
largest cycle park and a state-of-the-art gym, complete with a climbing window, 125 metres above the ground on level 25, as well as a wellbeing retreat on level 41.
It is also the first building in the UK to apply for the Delos WELL Building Standard.
