Danny Nightingale of TClarke talks of progress at Bloomberg Place.
“TClarke has worked on many iconic projects in the City of London, but this really is an outstanding building. The design is by Foster and partners and achieves a BREEAM Outstanding rating. What you notice right across the project is the sheer quality of the materials and the attention to detail within the design. From a practical point of view for us working onsite, this means having a team of people whose motivation and approach is of the highest order - because the working environment is crammed full of extremely valuable materials and finishes - so you need to work with great care. Indeed, the unique location of the site means that we’ve been working on top of some of the UK’s most exciting archaeological excavations - and that an archaeological museum - the London Mithreaum - will be incorporated within the finished development.
“For me, it’s a classic TClarke project, working with Stanhope and the Principal Contractor for Sir Robert McAlpine in a collaborative way to deliver a top, top project. There are so many details here in the design that contribute to the energy efficiency, the quality of the working environment and the sheer beauty of the place - these light fittings behind me (pictured) are just one of many examples I could give you.”
“We are now in the stages of completing the installation on the Shell & Core and fit out within the North building and well in to the commissioning phase, the South building still in the installation phase. As with any major TClarke project, the scope of works gives you an idea of the range and complexity of works we’re delivering.”
