TClarke announces major electrical and DfMA win at 8 Bishopsgate
16/10/20: TClarke are delighted to announce the company’s appointment to deliver the electrical package including a substantial amount of DfMA prefabricated riser work at the 52-Storey, 8 Bishopsgate development. TClarke Director Charlie Cork introduces the project which starts onsite in November 2020.
This landmark project is located the heart of the City on the corner of Leadenhall Street and Bishopsgate which boasts 560,000 sq ft of prime office accommodation. The architecture features a 52-storey triple blocked façade which gradually decreases in size as it reaches the top of the structure.
The project is predominantly an office development which also includes space for retail and public viewing galleries. The property developers are Stanhope & Mitsubishi Estates London, with Lendlease being the nominated Principal Contractor. TClarke will be delivering the full HV and LV packages, a complete generator package consisting of four 2600kVA HV generators located on levels 48 & 49, the complete CAT A Fit Out and the design and installation of our in house prefabricated electrical risers.
Our Prefabricated Riser capability offers major value to the programme
More and more of our clients are leaning towards the route of prefabricated risers. Not only does it reduce the timeframe of their project it also significantly reduces the amount of workforce on site which from a health and safety perspective is always a positive.
This compelling construction practice combined with TClarke’s industry leading techniques can develop and change the factors and constraints of construction by moving the works off site into a safer factory environment. By doing so TClarke’s high standards of quality can be monitored and maintained more closely in our factory.
