When historic meets modern: Moorgate building redevelopment

Moorgate building redevelopment

A recent innovative Moorgate development in London will provide contemporary office, residential and retail space. The property located within the Bank Conservation Area will be the new eight-storey building behind a retained Victorian façade.

Allies and Morrison Architects that have drawn up the plans for the development have commented on the project saying ‘Designed to integrate happily within the character of the surrounding area, the development occupies a city block of approximately 2,060 sq m which will be consolidated into a single unified building. The facades of 8-10 Moorgate and 17 and 16 Tokenhouse Yard are to be retained, refurbished and incorporated into the scheme. The Moorgate facade will form the principle frontage and entrance to the office building, while 17 Tokenhouse Yard will contain a number of small residential units.’

The modern extension of the building was developed by Waterman and William Hare structural engineers, which have contracted Barnshaw Section Benders to supply quality bends for the project.

Barnshaws benders provided 400 beams, largest of which was 610x305x179 UB. Altogether the beams weighed 360 tonnes and formed the structure of the Moorgate building. Barnshaws managed to deliver the curved material very quickly, it only took the benders 10 weeks.
