Wednesday, 11 September, 16:00 - 17:30
Tickets £10

Fletcher Priest Architects’ Ed Williams, Mareike Langkitsch, Tom Salmons and Ben Simpson will lead on this exclusive behind-the-scenes hard hat tour of the construction works at One Exchange Square.

The project reimagines an existing post-modern office building as a contemporary and sustainable workspace in a connected, lively part of the City of London.

The 13-storey building will create 445,000ft² of high-quality workspace and amenity with 20,000ft² of retail. The design retains 90% of the existing steel frame, concrete slabs and all foundations, while around 20 tonnes of steelwork required for the additional massing is coming from donor projects, both approaches drastically minimising embodied carbon.

Externally, half the existing stone facade is retained and repurposed to create a contemporary aesthetic, saving half of the embodied carbon per cladding bay. Internally, finishes comprise re-used, recycled or low carbon materials.

What people are saying

The event was fantastic, I really enjoyed attending and am already looking forward to the next one. The panel was very knowledgeable and engaging. The presentation covered pertinent parts of the Retrofit debate and it was interesting to hear from such different perspectives. Overall, the event was well-organised, and the venue was beautiful.


Joanna Bold, Senior Quantity Surveyor


I felt it was a thoroughly enjoyable and well-planned event, focusing on a current hot topic within the industry. It was an experienced, well-balanced panel, who conveyed a great deal of useful information in their presentations, followed by thought-provoking discussions and questions. It was also held at a very unique and interesting location. I look forward to the next one!


Henry Jackson, Quantity Surveyor​


I thought the event was really good and very interesting. It was also great to get insight from experts in their field from a variety of disciplines even down to the demo contract. I think others may have mentioned this but there is definitely a ‘part two’ opportunity to this and it would also be good to get insight from the office market, architectural team and how the reuse mindset needs to change around CAT A, etc.


Joe Wilson, Architect
