More than just an office space
WSP in Poland is engaged in prestigious office high rise development project, located in the London City. 22 Bishopsgate will form part of high rise cluster in that part of the city. In 2011 construction of Pinnacle, previously designed to be developed in the area, has been stopped. New design is considering buildings established in the district since 2011 as i.e. the adjacent Leadenhall. The aim of new project is to create a building, which will offer more than just an office space: it will integrate the areas shared by tenants, there will be an open viewing terrace, as well as restaurant and bar on higher levels.
Our team cooperated with London specialists on demolition plan and concept design for the new Client. Based on recovered documentation of Pinnacle, the team developed basement model and prepared plan aimed at adapting existing structural elements to the new project. Using i.e. existing piles located under the structure will save cost, even though the building core had to be demolished. Our experts took also part in the design of 62-storeys, above ground structure. Being in contact with the teams in London and using analytical models, they created BIM model and were engaged in coordination with building systems design teams in London.
