Project Profile

The project involved the refurbishment of the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 7th floors of this building to provide new facilities to accommodate 500 new Trader Desks.

Green Building Design was employed by JP Morgan to provide the Mechanical and Electrical design element for this project in the City of London.

The project involved the retention of the existing services as much as was possible.

The additional trading desks drew a significant amount of power and produced a large amount of heat. To prevent discomfort to the traders, Green Building Design designed a system with fan coil units within the floor void to provide cooling directly into the desks.

A new electrical changeover panel was installed to improve the resilience of the system. The electrical system was reconfigured to prevent the existing building generators being overloaded.
