Buckley BuildingLondon, UK
This existing office building has been redeveloped to provide approximately 90,000 sqft of contemporary office accommodation on behalf of London regeneration specialist developer Derwent London. Originally constructed as a warehouse in 1930s, the building underwent a basic conversion to office use in the 1980s.
Key interventions incorporated into this recently completed project include the addition of significant new office floor area within the existing atrium and the extension of floorplates.
Norman Disney & Young (NDY) was set the challenge of designing a low energy environmental system whilst minimising plant area at the valuable upper level of the building. Our response was to adopt an innovative floor by floor displacement ventilation approach. Where plant is being accommodated at roof level, our 3D modelling process has ensured that its impact on the building's distinctive roof profile is minimised.
The NDY team worked closely with architects Buckley Gray Yeoman to design an office workplace suitable for the 21st century, whilst recognising its industrial heritage.
This distinctive new addition to Clerkenwell office stock was completed in early 2013.
In addition to providing the engineering services consultancy for the project, NDY also provided Fire Strategy, Acoustic and Environmental Consultancy services.
