PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The Broadgate Tower and 201 Bishopsgate stand prominently within the renowned Broadgate business district in the City of London. SOM has been active in the district since it began to take shape in the 1980s, designing public space enhancements and many key buildings.

At 33 stories, The Broadgate Tower ranks among London’s tallest structures. The office building features double-deck elevators and, thanks to side-mounted cores, desirable open floor plates. Located near Liverpool Street Station, the tower was built above rail tracks and shares a 2.3-acre deck with 201 Bishopsgate, its shorter counterpart. Structural steel struts crisscrossing the glass facades of both buildings give them a rigorous, expressive quality.

A covered passageway with shops and cafes stretches between the two structures. Trees in and around the galleria help create a relaxed atmosphere. Sustainable features in both buildings include heat-recovery systems and lighting that dims in response to daylight levels.

SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGY

A strong focus on integrating sustainable features throughout the design and the construction of the Broadgate Tower has resulted in a highly efficient building without compromising operational performance. To reduce energy consumption, several provisions were incorporated into the design, such as:
- Water cooled chillers with centrifugal variable speed drives and associated cooling towers for heat rejection;
- High efficient chillers with a low turn down ratio to enable benefits of chillers to be passed onto the tenant in all operating conditions:
- Heat recovery from office ventilation plant using thermal wheels, taking advantage of the heat gains in the office space and reducing the requirement for heating air from the outside;
- Variable speed drivers fitted to all pumps and fans;
- Fan coil units with EDC motors and providing variable speed control matched to cooling load;
- Office lighting to have dimming, presence and daylighting control;
- Energy metering of chilled water, hot water and electrical services to each floor, and
- A comprehensive building management and monitoring system.

The low-E coated glass (low emission glass with a microscopically thin coating of metal oxide) used for the external facades reduces solar gain and keeps cool air inside, thus decreasing the need for cooling and almost eradicating heating requirements.

Further energy savings are achieved through the use of double deck, which require a single, larger, more efficient lift motor to carry two cars of passengers simultaneously, thus halving the number of motors required.

A building user guide is provided to ensure that occupiers operate in the building as efficiently as envisaged. Features such as local lighting zones, water metering and electricity sub-metering allow occupiers to take control of their own work environment.

The development provides and innovative and elegant response to complex site constraints while delivering buildings that reflect the commitment of both client and architect to a sustainable and environmentally sound future.
