Taking Care

Low On Trucking

As one of London’s first tall buildings to use a consolidated delivery plan, there will be fewer trucks around 22 Bishopsgate. This will minimise vehicle movements and disruption to people at street level both during construction and when up and running.

  • Fewer delivery vehicles at peak hours
  • Fewer cycle incidents
  • Less pollution

     

Moving Around

22 Bishopsgate is extraordinarily well connected with fantastic public transport routes. In addition to being located between Liverpool Street, Bank and Fenchurch Street station, it also offers easy access to Crossrail and international airports.

22 Bishopsgate will open up and connect pedestrian routes around the building and through the city.

Looking Out For London

Our plans for 22 Bishopsgate will have a reduced impact on important London views compared to the original scheme. Our approach has been reviewed positively by Design Council CABE,the GLA and the City of London.

Historic England (formerly English Heritage) remarked “we welcome the design approach and believe that the building will form a positive addition to the Eastern Cluster”

Health and wellness

Developed to the Delos WELL being standard, which focuses on areas such as air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind. This is reflected in the choice and performance of mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, as well as ancillary building services.

Environmental performance

Designed to achieve an ‘excellent’ rating according to BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Methodology), the world’s foremost environmental assessment and rating system for buildings.

Wind

Lots of tests have been carried out to ensure appropriate pedestrian conditions at the base of the building with regards to wind. Porous or solid canopies are proposed where necessary to deal with potential downdraft along Bishopsgate. The jagged edge of the building lobby and the proposed trees will help mitigate wind speed at street level.
