There’s iconic buildings and then there’s 22 Bishopsgate; the newest, brightest addition to London’s skyline.
Hailed as the ‘Vertical Village’, 22 Bishopsgate is a 62-storey landmark providing more than 1.2 million sq ft of office space, as well as vast social areas, a market and the very best views of the Capital from a free viewing gallery.
A true ‘building of the future’ 22 is focused on providing a location which acts as a hub that caters to every need for a diverse community.
From work to play, there will be a wealth of amenities to suit every taste - think gym, meeting spots, tasty food options, an incredible bike park, co-working, and even a club.
Our role within this project was to provide the connection design, fabrication and construction of approximately 17,000 tonnes of steelwork. This was delivered by a shared pit lane on Bishopsgate and the adjacent street - Undershaft, between the site and 122 Leadenhall.
This is an exciting and ambitious development. Superelevations, axial shortening and complex geometrical dilemmas posed by the double-height outrigger truss floor levels did pose some challenges, but with some considered technical designs, we were able to make sure everything from the design studies and reports were met.
Sustainability ratings and success
22 Bishopsgate is BREEAM rated Excellent and, in accordance with London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI) in its roadmap to net zero, is more than 40% below LETI’s business-as-usual benchmark
