Mercury was contracted to undertake all the Mechanical & Electrical works for the shell & core & fit-out areas to this prestigious 18 storey Aldgate Tower Office Block. The building is situated within the commercial heart of London City & sits on top of Aldgate Tube Station which added challenges to the project terms of access and logistics.
The tower is a steel framed structure with a central core accommodating lifts, services and stairs. The main facades are clad with a fully glazed, unitised full height aluminium framed curtain walling system. Due to its height Brisesoleil shading was provided to both the South and West elevations to reduce the possibility of radiant heat issues. Along with this, solar control is provided by soft coatings to all glazing elements. Maintenance of the facade is by way of a roof mounted building maintenance unit with extending arm and cradle.
The building was awarded an efficient Grade A building rating and it is fully compliant with the British council of offices guidelines.
