Skanska is building 20 Ropemaker Street, a mixed-use commercial scheme, worth £240 million.
Skanska will also install mechanical, electrical and public health services in the 25-storey commercial project. The scheme consists of 419,093 sq ft of office space and 11,785 sq ft of ground level retail space.
The project includes the creation of a double-height entrance and lobby along Ropemaker Street close to Moorgate Tube Station and a separate dedicated cycle entrance. A single storey of business space will be located at mezzanine level within the ‘street block’. Occupiable office space will cover 22 floors, with five accessible roof terraces. Three basement levels are provided for retail servicing, plant, facilities management, cycle and shower facilities.
The project has sustainable construction techniques at its heart that include:
- Efficient use of water and energy
- zero waste to landfill
- Materials that mitigate the impact of our operations on ecosystems
