Show Project DescriptionHide Project Description
UBS appointed tp bennett to prepare a strategic brief for a future consolidated London Headquarters that would support trading and investment banking.
With extensive financial services experience, tp bennett tested a number of options on a comparative basis before arriving at the development of 5 Broadgate to create a 700,000 sq ft headquarters building with four trading floors each totalling 65,000 sq ft, client facing areas and back offices.
The new building will consolidate the majority of UBS’s central London operations into a new financial services ‘super’ trading building. The space will enhance communication between the 7,000 staff and will significantly reduce the organisations emissions in line with their environmental policies.
The building is designed to be fully accessible and inclusive, with step free access throughout. The building incorporates two principal pedestrian access points which relate strongly to the pedestrian flow generated by the key public spaces and the Liverpool Street transport hub.
