Fletcher Priest’s 16-storey tower goes on site in the City

  • Comment

Construction has started on Fletcher Priest Architects‘ 6 Bevis Marks, a site adjacent to the  Gherkin. The office tower will include an extensive roof garden sheltered by a ETFE floating roof structure to allow use and access to views in all weathers.

The ETFE roof may however hinder what good the 10,000 sqft of roof garden could potentially do for rainwater runoff.

The proposal is predicted to be 80% more energy efficient than the 1980s building it replaces, reusing 50% of the existing structure.
