201 Bishopsgate


201 Bishopsgate

EMTEC was initially consulted by Bovis to help rationalise the architect’s complicated rainscreen design for the roof top plantroom envelope on British Land’s new 800,000 sq ft office development. Expertise gained through our involvement with a number of high rise developments at Canary Wharf lead to a design proposal based upon composite panels and EMTEC was subsequently awarded the contract to design, supply and install the specialist cladding system.

The adjacent 35 storey Broadgate Tower overlooks the roof of the 13 storey building 201 Bishopsgate, and the architect’s vision for the roof of 201 was to create an architectural feature of the plant screening and roof walkways. EMTEC accomplished this goal by integrating aluminium aerofoil screening, open steel gratings and stainless steel clad timber decking walkways. The success of this project has led to repeat contracts with both Bovis and British Land.
