Allied World Assurance 20 Fenchurch Street
Allied World Assurance Company are a worldwide leading insurance and reinsurance company with offices globally. Due to their continued growth Allied World required a larger London based office and have taken two floors within 20 Fenchurch Street, London.
This project consisted of 30,000 sq ft of space for Allied world’s initial requirement and 10,000 sq ft of sublet space for future proofing. There is open plan work spaces with staff break out and meeting facilities. The staff floor areas are over two levels and linked with a feature staircase with specialist lighting enhancing the structural openings. The lighting designs utilises LED to coincide with the main building philosophy for use of this light source for reduced energy consumption and retaining the BREEAM Excellent building certification.
This along with variable EC/DC motor fan coil units and CO2 controls in high occupancy areas have reduced energy further and actively uses the fresh air available where required. The comms rooms utilises the highly resilient building provisions for generator and chilled water to support these. Elementa undertook due diligence and lease negotiations at commencement of the project. To achieve the design periods available within the project’s fast track programme, and, meet the December occupation, we worked closely with Pringle Brandon Perkins + Will and Knight Frank. This was achieved by setting up targeted workshops at each key stage.
