Kingspan Access Flooring In New Headquarters

Over 66,000 sq m of Kingspan access floor panels is being installed by Connaught Access Floors in the new UK headquarters of the global financial services organisation, UBS.

The RMG 600 panels are being installed on all floors of the 12 storey building at 5 Broadgate, London. The new headquarters will provide state-of-the-art trading floors, enabling UBS to consolidate its London trading operations into one building.

The fit out works were designed by T P Bennett architects, and the works are managed by ISG. The offices are on track to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating. Carbon emissions will be reduced through energy efficient design and renewable energy sources, including solar thermal and photovoltaic panels.

The development includes 700 sq ft of green roof space and 242 sq ft of planting and trees at ground level and on the upper terraces. Connaught has started installation of the Kingspan flooring, and the building is due for final handover in April 2016.
