Located next to the Old Bailey, England’s most famous court, New Ludgate consists of two buildings which provide 35,210sqm of commercial office, retail and restaurant space. Both buildings have distinctive designs and roof terraces with fabulous views of St Paul’s Cathedral.
Although constructed using different methods, One New Ludgate, a 10-storey steel-frame building, and Two New Ludgate, a 10-storey concrete-frame building, were completed ahead of schedule.
The development is set to achieve environment standard BREEAM Excellent through the use of green solutions. These include on site power generation from solar panels on the roof, a combined heating and power plant (CHP) in the basement, and capturing rainwater and waste water to use across the development.
In June 2013, Land Securities appointed Skanska as the main contractor to design and construct New Ludgate, including the mechanical and electrical fit-out of selected floors and the creation of a public square. Working closely with the client from the start, Skanska put together a specialist in-house team, combining its skills in design, construction, mechanical and electrical engineering and ceiling installation.
