External Refurbishment of Guy’s Tower

case study

Working with a multidisciplinary design team we have devised a way of superinsulating and overcladding the tower while allowing it to remain fully operational.

As well as optimising energy efficiency and lowering running costs, the reclad will give this iconic building a distinct new profile befitting the national significance of the NHS and will symbolise a resurgent London neighbourhood.

The brief asked for innovative quality, cost effective solutions to address the structural, fenestration and energy issues of the tower, restore it to its former glory and make it fit for purpose for the next 30 years. The transformed envelope alone will reduce energy use by 15-20%.
