Sweco supports Tall Buildings Awards push as services engineer for One Park Drive at Canary Wharf
We’re proud to share the news that One Park Drive at Canary Wharf (Wood Wharf), a landmark project we are working on in collaboration with a number of high-profile partners, has been shortlisted in the Best Residential Tall Building Project category at this summer’s Tall Buildings Awards.
As lead building services engineer, Sweco provided mechanical, electrical, public health services design as well as energy and sustainability consultancy on the project. The unique mixed-use development is partially handed over, due to be completed this year, and is set to become an iconic part of London’s evolving tall building skyline.
Core expertise provided
- Building services engineering
- Early BIM designs
- Energy and sustainability strategy
- Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) assessments
- Connection to the first phase of Wood Wharf’s District Heating System
- Vertical transportation
Across 58 floors and standing at 209 metres high, One Park Drive comprises a blend of duplex Penthouses, Loft, Cluster and Bay apartments as well as communal amenity and leisure spaces. Coupled with Herzog and de Meuron’s unique architectural vision for a highly sculpted tower, which incorporated outdoor amenity space for each apartment, the building presented a unique and varied MEP challenge which our team relished and overcame through close collaboration across our teams and with our esteemed partners.
We also worked closely with Canary Wharf to deliver comprehensive information for the various Trade Packages which included Modern Methods of Construction with offsite fabricated bathroom pods and prefabricated building services modules for the central plant and in the apartments.
One Park Drive is one of seven buildings Sweco has helped to deliver within the Wood Wharf development for Canary Wharf Group.
