Join us for our last 'Behind the Scenes' tour of 2021 where EPR Architects and Heyne Tillett Steel will showcase their latest workplace project, 60 London Wall; a previously tired and outdated office building which has been extensively refurbished, reconfigured, reinvented and repositioned to create a high-quality workplace designed for a diverse set of occupiers positioned to make the City of London their new home.

As advocates for retrofit, EPR Architects together with Structural Engineers, Heyne Tillett Steel and client, LaSalle, felt that there was an opportunity to bring the building back to life whilst preserving much of its original structure. As part of the designs, the steel frame has been retained whilst providing extensive new office space arranged over large adaptable upper floor plates, centred around a communal atrium.

Innovatively designed with sustainability at its core, 60 London Wall has achieved a BREEAM rating of Outstanding. From the outset, the team’s ambition was to drastically improve the building’s environmental credentials through thermal performance, passive design and the reuse of the existing structure; 8,600 tonnes of carbon have been retained. The embodied carbon of the structural elements has been measured at 193 kgco2e/m2, sitting well within the LETI 2030 carbon target and just above 2030 targets.
