The Concept

ONE Bishopsgate Plaza is a mixed-use development located in the City of London. The 43-story, 135 m (444 ft) high tower features a sophisticated form which steps as it rises. The scheme accommodates high-end retail components, restaurants and cafés on the ground floors, a luxury 5-star hotel and, on the upper levels of the main tower building, private residential apartments. Furthermore, the scheme includes a new public space filled with shops and cafes at its edges.


135 m / 443 ft

43 stories tall

Scheldebouw, the Dutch brand of Permasteelisa Group, designed, engineered, manufactured and installed the façade of the main tower and the pavilion, a full transparent box featured by structural glass fins for both the façade and the roof. In order to keep the atmosphere inside the pavilion comfortable, the glass features a high-performance coating. The roof glazing and the West and South façade glass have a custom frit pattern to lower the heat-gain even further. For the North and South elevation, a special LED lighting system - incorporated into the stainless steel connection profiles between the glass frames and the façade and roof glazing units - was developed.

The Project
Scope of Work

Design & engineering, manufacturing and installation of 20,000 sqm (215,300 sq ft) of unitized curtain wall and 11,000 sqm (118,400 sq ft) of brise soleil.
