Facts

  • The building occupies the site of Spitalfields Market which dates back to the 13th century.
  • 9,856 tonnes of structural steel were utilised in the construction.
  • The entrance lobby has a lounge mezzanine above.
  • The lower ground floor has an employee-only fully equipped gymnasium and double height sports hall as well as saunas in both the female and male changing rooms.
  • The building's roof has the largest office-based solar array in London, generating 4,700 kw hours of electricity and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 23 tonnes per annum.
  • Escalators incorporate energy saving drives that reduce their speed when not in use; heat generated by the air-conditioning systems is diverted to heat the building.
  • The lower ground floor has a spacious auditorium-cum-conference room with cinema projection and podium.
  • Bishops Square is triple glazed whilst passive infrared light detectors determine whether or not localized illumination should be employed.
  • A sixth floor café and a restaurant lead onto an expansive roof garden with box hedges and planters replete with swathes of lavender. There are neatly trimmed lawns and a children's play area along with ample seating.
