DNB ASA Bank The Walbrook Building
This leading Norwegian Bank relocation required a 27,000 ft² CAT A to B fit out as part of the 8th floor in the Walbrook Building for their new Central London headquarters. The project programme is due for completion in July to meet the existing premises lease expiry. The requirement includes open plan working, trading spaces for 30 people, a resilient comms room and a large flexible client meeting suite which can accommodate 100 people.
Elementa undertook full design including specialist lighting as well as lease negotiations for the client. A collaborative design approach has been undertaken which included detailing the mechanical design to a high level of coordination with the interior design intent, ceilings and the tight structural arrangement at this level.
One of the main challenges presented at the site was the capacity of fresh air available for the 100 person meeting room combined with the restricted roof area available for tenants plants. To overcome this, several manufacturers were engaged with which resulted in providing a piece of bespoke equipment to fit on the roof to provide an appropriate supply of fresh air.
