201 Bishopsgate and the Broadgate Tower, London

Client: British Land
Architect: Skidmore, Owings & Merrill
Contractor: Bovis Lend Lease
Type of works: plantroom cladding and architectural features for roof top areas of British Land’s flagship city office development.

EMTEC was initially consulted by Bovis to help rationalise the architect’s complicated rainscreen design for the roof top plantroom cladding on British Land’s new 800,000 sq ft speculative office development. Calling on their recent experience at the high rise Canary Wharf Towers, a design was proposed based upon Trimo’s FTV 120 composite cladding panels, and EMTEC was awarded the contract to design, supply and install 1300m2 of the 2-hour fire-rated cladding system.

The 35 storey Broadgate Tower overlooks the roof of the 13 storey building 201 Bishopsgate, and the architects design for the roof of 201 included aluminium louvre screening, open steel gratings and stainless steel clad timber decking walkways to hide the external mechanical plant from view. EMTEC designed, supplied and installed all this equipment using the following products:-

  • 935m2 of bespoke aluminium extrusions including a 400mm deep aerofoil profile fin and box section framing, all in anodised finish.
  • 850m2 of forgeweld galvanised-steel open flooring panels with ladders, handrails and access gates.
  • 850m2 of decking walkways constructed from “techwood” composite plastic/wood boards with stainless-steel feature cladding to borders including curved areas at the south/east corner.

    EMTEC successfully installed all elements on programme and maintained a positive working relationship with Bovis and other contractors throughout the project. The success of this project has led to several repeat contracts with both Bovis and British Land.
